The 2015 FIS World Telemark Skiing Championships will bring the best telemark racers from around the world to Steamboat Springs to compete for the World Championships. This will be the second time the FIS Telemark World Championships have been held in the U.S., with the first event held in Whitefish, MT in 2003. The World Championships are held every other year, and this year teams from the United States, Canada, Norway, France, Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, Sweden, Slovakia, Austria, and Italy are expected to compete. Hungary, Finland, Czech Republic, Japan, and Ukraine may also send athletes to the US. The racers will compete in four events including the Classic, Sprint Classic, the Parallel Sprint, and Team Parallel Sprint. The head-to-head parallel competitions are especially spectator friendly and exciting. Because Telemark is not yet in the Olympics, this is the showcase event for the athletes and the best of the best attend. More Information at http://www.telemarkworldcup.com/
