Beginners Telemark Lessons in Val d'Isere and Tignes

This beginners telemark skiing course is where your free heel journey starts. No prior telemark skiing experience is required to sign up for a Tele Virgins course but we do ask that you have an advanced alpine skiing standard ie. strong on red runs.

You will make your first tele turns in a controlled environment and start to produce easy flowing linked turns down the mountain. Initially this will be on the green training slopes but quickly moving on to discover more of what the Val d'Isere and Tignes pistes have to offer.

Like all technical sports, beginner telemark lessons make a huge difference to your progression even if you're a strong alpine skier. Make the most of your time on the snow with some top level telemark coaching to quickly progress past the beginner telemark phase and experience the World famous Val d'Isere and Tignes terrain.

Coaching sessions will include a high level of personal feed back on the hill and video feedback during the week.
