• Tickets - Price is same as regular lift ticket of the day. Season pass holders and special lift coupons pay $20 (that can go towards buying raffle tickets). You need the festival lift ticket to access the free demos and free clinics. Buy your festival tickets at the Whitecap lodge headquarters only!!All participants of legal age (21) will receive a free beer ticket courtesy of our sponsor, Shipyard.

• Demos- Most of the telemark companies will be represented and you will have a chance to demo the newest gear for free! These are not rentals. Therefore all gear can only be taken out for two hours at a time.

Sponsors -At the heart of every great organization there must be a dedicated group of people. Along with our instructors and volunteers are our sponsors. Where would we be without them? They help us out financially but more than that, many of them are right there at the festivals with us, giving the public a chance to try out all the newest and best telemark gear. To them we have dedicated a 'sponsor page' with descriptions of their products and links to their web pages. All our thanks to our Gold Sponsors, Garmont and Voile as well as sponsors Backcountry Mag, Telemark Skier, Black Diamond, Flylow, Shipyard, and TwentyTwo Design for their support.

• Lessons - We are the only PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) certified telemark ski school. Most of our instructors are members of PSIA and all are highly trained and motivated. We want our clinics to be fun most of all but to hopefully give you a chance to improve your skiing in an enjoyable, free spirited atmosphere. All clinics are 1 1/2 hours long and are free! Clinics times are 10:00 and 1:30.

We will have clinics for all abilities, from never-evers to expert. Some of our special clinics will include*;

Crossover clinics for alpine skiers coming to Telemark.

Master Clinics. Taught by our Educational Staff members, these are clinics for the expert.

Detect and Correct. A quick firing clinic meant to help you with immediate noticeable problems.

Women's Clinics. Women teaching women. Some of NET's top women instructors will be leading clinics both days.

Mogul Clinics. Our best bumpers show you how it's done.

Kids Clinic. We have the gear and the instructor.

Private Lessons. If you really don't want the free group lesson we will have private lessons available at $50 an hour, half day privates for $150 and all day privates for $275.

*Clinics are subject to change depending upon conditions and instructor availability.



• Events-

Telemarkeast.com, a new community telemark forum for the east, will have a raffle for something good TBA. A winner's name will be announced on the forum every minute on Monday starting at 8PM until someone responds by posting. More details can be found on the forum.

• Party- 4-5 The awards ceremony and party will be downstairs in the Shipyard tavern.

• Rentals- Demo gear of course is free to use at the festival but if you really need some gear for the entire day we recommend renting from Jack Frost on the SR access road or EMS in North Conway. If you can't find rentals..don't worry, just get there early and we will make sure you have gear for at least part of the day. (Demos boots and skis are available for a maximum time of two hours then must be returned. If no one is waiting you can take them out again.)
