Coming up next Tuesday Night (January 10th) at Ski Bowl is our first of two Tele Tuesday events (the second event is Feb 21st). Tele Tuesday is a fundraiser for The Friends of the NW Weather and Avalanche Center.
The Mountain Shop will be set up from 5 PM to 9 PM demoing the latest Telemark and Alpine Touring equipment. At 7 pm we will also have Telemark lessons available for beginning and intermediate level skiers provided by WyEast Nordic. Also at 7PM we will have a uphill/downhill race. The uphill/downhill event (known in some circles as a rando race) is open to all disciplines, Telemark, Nordic (if you are brave enough to ski off the top of the upper bowl on skinny skis), Alpine Tourers and Splitboarders.
New for this year at Tele Tuesday’s is a Avalanche transceiver demo from 5-7pm. Avalanche instructors from Timberline Mountain Guides and Mountain Savvy will be on hand to help participants check out the latest avalanche transceivers. We also will have Terminal Gravity beer on tap in the A-frame (Outback Lodge) for $3 a pint with the proceeds going to the Snowrider Project. We will move up to the Bierstube at 10 pm for a raffle and prizes for the race.
All event participants must purchase a lift ticket from Ski Bowl or have an active pass. Registration for the race, demo, and lessons goes from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. Event fees are as follows.
$10 for ski and avalanche transceiver demo
$15 for uphill/downhill race
$25 for Telemark lessons
See you up on the mountain!
