Singles Ski Welcome

Hi My Name is John Mac, I have been a keen skier for over 20 years. Recently I have found myself with no mates to go skiing with, I know, what a "Billy No Mates" :) So I know from experience how difficult it is to get a decent deal if you are a Single Skier or Boarder. With that in mind I have started this Blog to help all Single Skiers & Boarders to find decent deals for getting to the slopes & to hook up with fellow skiers/boarders.

2-28-10 Skiing/Boarding Mount Washington after 30+ inches of snow

Some video of the summit crew getting outside on the first nice day after two big storms that dumped a ton of snow on strong east winds. This filled in some unusual places on the mountain. The beginning of the video shows the Great Gulf Headwall, very nicely filled in from the storm. Unfortunately an elevated avalanche danger and lack of avy gear prevented a run down the headwall. So some lower angle terrain was lapped instead, on the northwest side of the summit cone just below the Observatory building. For weather, webcams, and information on how you can support the work of the Mount Washington Obsevatory, please visit www.mountwashington.org.

Olympic push from Britain’s telemark captain


Please turn on JavaScript. Media requires JavaScript to play.

An introduction to telemark with Andrew Clarke


Britain’s telemark skiing captain Andrew Clarke is calling for the sport to be included in the Winter Olympics.

Telemark currently has a World Cup programme, but is some way off being included in the Olympics.

“I want it become an Olympic sport,” Clarke told BBC Spotlight. “And I know a lot of other people who do as well.

“There are thousands of people doing telemark, but because it’s not a Olympic sport, money is limited because sponsors want to be behind the glitz.”

He added: “The Olympics are the ultimate in sport really.

“It’s the ultimate ambition is to compete for your country at the Games, and there’s nothing above walking out into the Olympic arena.”

Clarke, 35, re-formed the British telemark team in 2006, and there are now 12 members on the squad.


He said: “For us it’s really difficult because a lot of our guys would love to be able to go away for four to five months to train, but we just don’t have the money to do it.

“Twenty to 25 years ago it was very unfashionable, but more people are doing it these days because it’s the cool thing to do.”

The British captain, who works as an army commando in Plymouth, is also hoping to become the world representative for telemark with the Federation of International Skiing [FIS].

If Clarke is elected to the role, he will have influence in lobbying the Winter Olympic Games Committee to include the sport, although he admitted the process can be long-winded.

He said: “The FIS put the bid forward to the Winter Olympic Games Committee and it then takes around four to six years to get a bid through.”

At the heart of Clarke’s campaign for Olympic inclusion is a love for a sport which has its roots in Norway, where it was started by Sondre Norheim in the 1860s.

He said: “Telemark skiing is a fantastic way of getting around a mountain.

“I really love it because it’s enjoyable and it means you can go many more places that you wouldn’t be able to go on alpine skis.”
