This is the dedication to Sondre Norheim on his statue.
Telemark skiing today
Prior to Sondre Norheim's Telemark skiing, traditional skis were very long, hard, heavy, and difficult to turn. Telemark skis and skiing techniques changed all this, making it much easier for skiers to turn and to control speed. Telemarkers set the foundations over which modern alpine skiing developed during the 20th century.Telemark skis are rather similar to alpine skis, the main difference being the flexible bindings that connect the boot to the ski at the toes only, just like in Nordic skiing. The main characteristic of the Telemark skiing technique is the turnning, which is led with the heel flat on the outside ski, while the inside ski is pulled beneath the skier's body with a flexed knee and raised heel. Today, there are still a number of skiers who choose to ski 'the old fashioned way', using Telemark equipment and techniques. Telemark is particularly popular in Scandinavia and it is quite common to see skiers telemarking at the slopes of the Nordic ski resorts.

Finns are born with ski poles in their hands

Finns are quiet people and love the nature and sport.
Ski jumping is one of the national sports.
In summer, they have a lot of festivals and most went hideaway in summer cottages.
During the autumn Finns spend a lot of time in the forest collecting woods, berries and mushrooms.
Winter activities are taking the skis out from the garage/store and have fun at any age.
In Finland, Finnish ski resorts and ski hire shops are really excellent, good stuff, well-kept, great instructors and very helpful people. Even so, Finns owned their ski equipments.
