The festival which is co-hosted by Grand Targhee Resort, and Yostmark Mountain Equipment offers clinics for all levels with some of the top clinicians in the region including sponsored athletes, demo team members, PSIA trainers and more. The event also boasts a backcountry ski day guided by Yostmark Backcountry Tours in some of our famous Teton powder.
Clinics and backcountry skiing are just the beginning! You'll also enjoy:
- Telemark Ski Demos including Black Diamond, 22 Designs, and more!

Below is just one of the many comments that emerged from previous festivals: "I have been to several Telemark festivals over the years and I can honestly say that the quality of instruction, the attention to guest experience, and the overall vibe of this event were truly exceptional. I'll be back. And I will bring all my friends."
-Rick Jensen of Anaconda, Montana.
The weekend will start with pre-registration and a kick-off fiesta on the evening of Friday, February 27th to view the master of all Tele films Powder Whores 08. Two days of clinics will follow and the race/party and prizes will happen on Sunday afternoon. The backcountry ski day will be on Monday, March 2nd.
