Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Telemark ski gear, and your helmet.   Please bring your own or rent equipment in town - the Snow Sports Director ( can help answer your questions.  The Mountaineers does not provide you with equipment, and we do not have equipment to rent at the Lodge.  

Attempting to telemark ski with AT (Randonee) gear is not recommended.  While the telemark stance can be useful when touring undulating terrain, most AT bindings are not robust enough to handle the forces generated by the telemark turn.

Helmets are strongly recommended.

Handwear: The rope tow wears out gloves and mitts quickly, so we recommend wearing leather work gloves over glove liners.  Welding gloves also work well.  Meany also has several styles of leather over-mitt protectors available for sale.   Most people stay plenty warm while skiing.  We recommend bringing a separate pair of warm mitts to wear while you are not riding.
