Telemark FIS World Championships – 14 – 19/03/2017

After organising 5 telemark World Cups, Montchavin-la Plagne is proud to be hosting the world’s finest once again for 4 days of competition between the sites of Montchavin-la Plagne and the stadium in Plagne Centre.

To the rhythm of lunges and raised heels, the telemarkers race through the gates like snow warriors combining strength, endurance and grace.

Phil Lau, from France, the local athlete for this stage, and Amélie Reymond from Switzerland have already announced that they are determined to win these world championships! They both have a reputation for being at the top of their discipline and have already won a number of globes.
