Appalachian Telemark Association

The Appalachian Telemark Association (ATA) is a loose confederation of free-heel skiers whose purpose is to promote the sport through social gatherings, instructional workshops, and races. ATA events are usually held at Seven Springs Mountain Resort (PA). As a member of the Western PA Ski Council (WPSC), ATA members can participate in WPSC-sponsored events including races, gate training, social events and ski trips.
