Pomatt Telemark

Valdo Frazione di Formazza, Formazza Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, Italy

The 6th meeting "Pomatt Telemark" will be held the weekend of February 6/7/8 on the snow Pomatt. Created to enhance and promote this particular skiing technique, Pomatt Telemark is a three-day festival is open to everyone: those who already practice telemark, those who want to hone their technique and especially those who want to try this ancient technique with the support of qualified teachers. The Telemark, named after the Norwegian county where skiing was born, is one of the first techniques developed for driving down and is known as "free heel" because the boot is attached to the ski only at the toe and then the heel can raise. This particular skiing technique, gone into disuse in the '40s of the last century, is back in vogue in the 70s, initially in the US, then in other parts of the world, as a "back to basics" in response to the increasingly technology exasperated used in alpine skiing. Just to emphasize this aspect retro, often telemark is practiced with clothing not really technological. Gatherings of fans of this technique have been born in recent years in Italy and in Europe, and are resolved in a big party, where next when "sports" never fail convivial. And in this spirit, the organizers have prepared a three-day program that will satisfy both those who prefer the sporty look is the revelers: Friday, February 6 from 14.00 to 16.00 there will be a reception for the participants and skiing demonstration at the golf school Valdo fraction; from 20.00 is expected apericena at Bar Alpenrose Fondovalle. Saturday, February 7 the day will begin at 9:00 with the reception at the golf school Valdo; during the whole morning will be able to try telemark, while in the afternoon there will be a "race to surprise" and the evening will be held at the Hotel Corno Brunni, a big party.
