At the end of their stay they had 3 competitions (Telemark Sprint Classic, Telemark GS, Telemark Classic GS), where both, Telemark-beginners as well as Telemark-professionals showed great performances.

On saturday evening there was a demontration of the Telemark-technique from the British Army and ski-instructors of the Ski-school Karl Maier.

At a small gathering in the Rauriserhof the general of the British Army thanked everyone for the great support, especially the lift-company (Rauriser Hochalmbahnen), the tourist-office, the ski-club, Sport Egger and the Ski-school Karl Maier.

And he promised to be back in Rauris for the Telemark-Championships of the British Army next year.
