The International Ski Federation (FIS) selected seven venues to host the 2013-2014 FIS Telemark World Cup. After an exciting start at the Austrian resort of Hintertux, the World Cup continues in Les Contamines Montjoie this coming weekend where Born Skier will be covering the event and cheering for its competitors. A special welcome to our ambassadors: Amélie Reymond of Switzerland, Johanna Holzmann of Germany, Jasmin Taylor of Great Britain and Shigeta Hisada of Japan.
Most Telemarkers arrived earlier this week in Les Contamines Montjoie and are now training at the resorts. Will the French win at home despite a strong start on the World Cup of the German, Swiss and Norwegian teams this season? Come find out from December 20 to the 23!
