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.

TELEPALOOZA 2015! ATA is the organizer of Telepalooza, our annual two-day telemark festival at Seven Springs. The 2014/2015 season marks the 13th year for Telepalooza. Telepalooza 2015 will be held on Feb 7/8, 2015.  Thanks to our Sponsors for their generous contributions and support!

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.

NEW! ATA is paying it forward by offering scholarships to assist aspiring telemark instructors with educational expenses related to attending PSIA Telemark events. Click HERE for an ATA Scholarship application form.
