Telemark is a form of downhill skiing using bindings where the boot is attached only at the toe (similar to those of Cross-­coun­try skiing). It came to the at­ten­tion of the Nor­we­gian public in 1868, when Sondre Norheim took part in a ski jumping com­pe­ti­tion. Norheim's tech­nique of fluid turns soon dom­i­nat­ed skiing. Starting in the 1910s, newer tech­niques based on the stem grad­u­al­ly replaced Telemark in the Alpine coun­tries, as easier to master and more suitable for steep slopes.
