Ever see those skiers whose heels rise up and lift off their skis when they’re heading down the mountain? Ever wonder how they do such a thing? If you’re looking for some good vibes on the slopes, check out Telestock on Friday, Feb. 24. This is your chance to experience teleskiing, with free ski and boot demos. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. head to Holiday Valley’s Champagne Sundeck by Yodeler Lodge.

Telestock is sponsored by Dom’s Butcher Block, 22 Designs, Scarpa, Telemark Skier, Free Heel Life, Fly Low and the City Garage.

“We’ve always tried to make Telestock a welcoming, fun filled day of skiing,” noted Trey Clauss, manager at City Garage.

New this year are NTN (New Telemark Norm) bindings /boots for demo. Boots are provided by Scarpa, bindings by 22Designs.

According Clauss, highlights include “skiing with local enthusiasts and learning tips from fellow skiers in a laid back relaxed atmosphere.”

Special lift ticket rates are available to participants. Supercool custom spun tie dyes are available for purchase the day of event, and there is also a sausage cookout from Dom’s Butcher Block.

“Each year seems to take on a different vibe— come out to see what this year has to offer!” said Clauss.
