Telemark skiing has always been a big deal in Telluride and Pancho and the Telluride Ski School have been teaching telemark skiing for over 25 years. Telemark skiing is a great way to improve your skiing thru “lateral learning.” Since our heel is not fixed in place, as with alpine skis, telemark skiing offers a whole new set of balancing challenges.

Pancho loves jibbing in the Terrain Park and teaching basic airs, grabs and jumping. Pancho also teaches beginner “fun box” and rail technique as well as skiing the Half Pipe.
