The Telemark Club des Houches traveled a 7 hour round trip to Auris en Oisans for a sunny Coupe de France race near the famous French resort, Les Deux Alpes. Auris en Oisans was my very first telemark race and it was there that I learnt how much fun telemark racing could be.

I skied two clean runs, with no penalties as well as having the fastest ski time – so all in all, I was happy with my performance and the long drive was worth it.

I’ll be spending half the week in Les Houches, flying back home to England on Thursday for some rest and then off to the U.S.A for some skiing with the American National Telemark Team and the World Cup Steamboat Springs races.
