That’s a wrap folks! The 2018-2019 US Telemark season has officially come to a close. Last week was our US Karbon National Championships at Eldora Mountain Resort and it’s safe to say that it was a success.
The beginning of the week started off with some, um, weather. It seemed like all of Colorado shut down, so for those that were there early we got in some incredible powder turns, but it also meant some on-the-fly schedule adjustments, moving one Classic to Friday morning, so that athletes who's flights had been canceled could still compete. Eldora was such a gracious host, in fact their EMSC Executive Director, Matt Tomasko and Director of Marketing, Sam Bass, ended up (after watching how great the racing is the first day) signed up for the remaining three races.
In the end, the overall National Champions were as follows. For Elite men: Jeffrey Gay, Charlie Dresen, and Birk Larsen For Elite women: Lyta Foulk, Sarah Carley, and Taylor Finn.
The Junior women's National Champions were Isabella Cerasoli with Rebecca Popper in 2nd and Agatha Chan in Third; The Junior Men's Champions were Theodore Chan followed by Grant Nylander. Read More.
Also just a quick note that photos from the event can be viewed on the USTSA Flickr account, with more being added every day!
This year we have several athletes who went over to Norway to join the final stop on the FIS world cup circuit - the 2019 Telemark World Championships. Cory Snyder (who has relocated to Europe and has been present at each of the World Cups) was joined by Sara Godek, Birk Larsen, and Jeff Gay. Read More.
