Watch: This Might Be A New Olympic Sport

Drop knees, not bombs. Free your heel, free your mind. Half a binding, half a brain.

Hey, I didn’t come up with those, just repeating every single chairlift conversation I’ve ever heard whenever a telemarker passes below the lift. That could soon become the latest winter Olympic sport, after FIS announced pushing to include telemark parallel sprinting into the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. Well, if you’ve never even heard of the sport, neither have we, but it seems to be a big enough deal in certain circles to warrant inclusion.

Take a look at the somewhat bizarre combination of skiercross, cross country skiing, and slalom racing. The course starts with a downhill section, followed by a short uphill sprint and a mad sprint on flat to the finish line. It certainly does not look easy, so props to whoever is doing this, it actually does look pretty cool. We know you’re out there somewhere.

I like this sport but no training conditions. http://wingsio0.com

While deep snow and steep pitches are some of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s most valued attributes, they can also cause major problems, like avalanches. Normally, JHMR ski patrol’s extensive experience and a healthy dose of dynamite mitigates any danger. Once in a blue moon, however, there is an in-bounds slide. When that happens, rapidly locating and excavating buried victims is the key to a positive outcome. In those critical moments when an extra few minutes of searching and digging can
