Telemark Skiing

An alternative to Alpine skiing which goes back to basics, allowing experienced skiers and novices to get involved with training, development and competitions.

Royal Navy Telemark Skiing

It is easier and quicker to learn Telemark once you can ski basic parallels, however, skiers of all abilities, experience and interest are welcome.

Beginners can attend Exercise White Dagger, a two-week grassroots development and training camp, before progressing to Exercise Telemark Titan.

Advanced skiers can develop and compete in race events. Essentially the triathlon of winter events, with ski gates, a jump, and a cross-country skate, it runs over four races: Giant Slalom, Sprint, Classic and Parallel Sprint Slalom.

Exercise Telemark Titan presents the RN Telemark Championships. Held each January in Pralongan La Vanoise, France, it's a joint event with the Army. Also hosting the British Telemark Champs and the British event of the FIS Telemark World Cup, TeamGB Selectors are at the event with RN personnel having represented their country at Telemark World Cup events.
