Telemark Nordic Club has successfully completed a year-long project to upgrade the club’s cross-country ski race courses and has been awarded Federation International de Ski (FIS) certification. The new certification will begin paying off February 8-10, 2019 when we host the Western Canadian Championships. We anticipate welcoming over 500 of the most competitive cross-country skiers along with their coaches and support teams from across Canada and western United States. Mike Norton, FIS Homologation Inspector for Cross Country Canada, was impressed with the new race courses at Telemark, adding “The 5.0 km race course is one of the best and most challenging courses in the country.” James Williams and Tim Mayer, long-time Telemark Club members and Masters racers themselves, are responsible for most of the work on the project. According to James, “We are really pleased with how everything turned out. The athletes are going to love these courses. It is not just about racing, though. Our day-to-day recreational skiers also benefit from the course upgrades.”
