Kare Anderson honored by Bromley
Among those who gathered to honor Kare Andersen were John Schweizer, past president and CEO of Garmont Boots, Bill Cairns, Director of Resort Operations at Bromley Mountain and Peter Robertson, Director of the Bromley Mountain Ski & Snowboard School, and John Tidd, Andersen's longtime friend, colleague and fellow PSIA telemark instructor and Examiner.
Andersen, who learned the sport as a child in his native Norway and skies regularly still, has helmed Bromley's Telemark Center for the past twenty-one years. He'll be stepping down from his instructional role as of now, passing the torch to Greg DeCell.
When asked to comment, DeCell said "Kare Andersen is a living legend in the world of telemark skiing, not only here in Vermont but on a national level. It is an honor to be associated with him and a tribute to follow in his foot steps."
This year's Kare Anderson Telemark Ski Race, the twenty-sixth consecutive race in the series, will be held at Bromley on Feb. 27 and will, like its predecessors, draw the top tele ski racers from across the North East.
Bromley Mountain is located on Vermont Route 11, six miles east of Manchester and online at bromley.com.
