Torocuervo, founded in 1999 by five telemark nuts, is La Rioja’s only telemark club. The village of Ezcaray, nearby Valdezcaray ski resort and the entire Sierra de la Demanda range of mountains is our “base camp”. In recent years Valdezcaray has become the national centre for telemark; the first place in Spain to host European and World cup races. However Torocuervo’s main aim isn’t to hold races but rather to encourage people to participate in the sport and make available the necessary equipment.
We’ve an extensive range of skis and boots and even young children can try out bending the knee and feel the magic and fascination of freeing the heel. Some of our young members have gone on to compete at World Cup level. Every year we add to our range of boots and skis as well as life-saving mountain equipment like Arvas. We also dream up new projects to keep the juices flowing. The passion that defines the club drives us forward every year.
