    I noticed that there are a few telemark skiers hanging around here on WePowder.COM. Cool.

    Every year I try to organise a tele-trip for the dutch WePowder.NL crew, somewhere in januari/ beginning februari. Last year I had bow out, after having won a CMH heliski trip to Canada (yeah, boohoo for me 馃槈 ).

    I don't expect to win anything like that this year 馃槥 so I'm trying to put together a tele-trip again.

    Don't imagine anything fancy, just a bunch of tele skiers who freeride together for a weekend. We haven't used guides (yet) and we don't plan where we're headed till the last minute, i.e. a few days in advance. There are no costs involved other than pay your own (lodging, lift tickets, etc).

    It would be cool if some of you could hook up too. Let me know if you're interested and I'll try to keep everyone posted.

    PS I'm recovering from knee surgery (3 weeks ago) and hope to push the date for the trip back a bit. Maybe februari or march. Otherwise I'll be in pussy mode too much...

    That looks great! I am also recovering from knee injury and I am not sure if I can telemark anymore, but I am gonna test it the first chance I get skiing. If that works out allright I would be very interested in a Telecamp馃槂

    Sweet. Where abouts are you from?

    As for knees: it looks like I'm recovering quite nicely at the moment. So I have good hopes for a telemark get together.

    I´m from Sweden, but live close to the major airport so have no trouble getting down to the alps.

    Yeah, knees are troublesome, great if you can get back so quickly. I will check in and see what happens (not just to see where it snows 馃槂

    Looks like 'knee wise' march is the safest bet...

    No hard date yet, but will tune in once I know more.

    Hey everyone.

    With an unstable snowpack and a knee that isn't making the progress I was hoping for, I'd like to propose to do the weTelemark trip at the end of march.

    This coincides with dates for La Skieda.

    How about we combine the two? I'd love to go the THE tele-festival and it gives me time for my knee to heel up.

    Good idea or not?

    Looks like we're heading for the Monterosa area this coming week, or french alps. Give us a post if there are any teleriders out here馃槈

    Won't be able to make it. However will be testing my knee on a family ski trip to Zermatt next week. Might be open to skiing a morning/ afternoon with someone else than wife/ kids.

    On a whole other note: depending on how the knee holds up, I'd really like to go to La Skieda. Not sure if I want to go for half a week or the whole deal.

    Anyone here thinking of going there too?

    I'm sorry to say that my knee is f***ed and therefore won't be able to make it. Obviously I wish it was different (haven't done ANY noteworthy skiing this season due to my knee) and would've loved to 1. go to SKieda and 2. meet other WePowder.COM'ers...

    Ugh
