Bromley Dedicates Kare Andersen Telemark Center

Bromley Mountain, VT - On December 30, Bromley Mountain honored its long-time telemark instructor, Kare Andersen, by rededicating and renaming its Telemark Center after the 93-year old telemark phenom (telemark, aka “free heel skiing,” is a downhill skiing style in which boots are bound to the skis only to the toes, similar to cross-country skiing).

Among those who gathered to honor Kare Andersen were John Schweizer, past president and CEO of Garmont Boots, Bill Cairns, Director of Resort Operations at Bromley Mountain and Peter Robertson, Director of the Bromley Mountain Ski & Snowboard School, and John Tidd, Andersen’s longtime friend, colleague and fellow PSIA telemark instructor and Examiner.

Andersen, who learned the sport as a child in his native Norway and skies regularly still, has helmed Bromley’s Telemark Centerl for the past twenty-one years. He’ll be stepping down from his instructional role as of now, passing the torch to Greg DeCell.
