â€œLorin has been a podium fixture around here the last few years and she seems to like our hats, she is a regular at the office when the snow starts to fall. Well are honored to have her on our team – she is a remarkable young woman and athlete,â€ comments Gary Supple, US Sales Director for Chaos.
The racing begins this weekend, Steamboat and Keystone Resort will host the Telemark World Cup, in a combined effort to bring the best tele skiers to Colorado. Racing is Feb. 20 through Feb. 28, 2010.
This is the first Telemark World Cup in Colorado. The events are typically run in other parts of the country. Now, there are so many athletes from the Rocky Mountains, events are now being held in Colorado. Four Steamboat skiers are on the U.S. Telemark “A” team, including brother and sister, Lorin and Ben Paley, and local Charlie Dresen, and Coach Shane Anderson. Five more Steamboat skiers are on the “B” or Development team.
Action starts in Steamboat Springs, with a day of training followed by a Giant Slalom and two Sprint Classic comps. Races are at both Mount Werner at Steamboat, and Howelsen Hill which is downtown. Then the entourage of freeheel fans journeys to Silverthorne, where four days of racing continues at Keystone.
Most of the Telemark skiers will first have competed at a World Cup in Norway, before heading to Steamboat. Paley explains, “I keep telling everyone who has participated or watched Telemark racing in the U.S. how exciting it will be to watch the best racers in the world ski, jump, and skate in an international World Cup Race. For those who have never seen a Telemark race, they should.â€
Paley is a member of the US National Telemark A Team and trains with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.

Telemark Junior World Champion in Classic and Sprint Classic, Kreischberg, Austria. First US woman on podium at World Championships.
