Watch the GB Telemark team sessioning on Hintertux

When the GB Telemark squad carry a film camera for the day, this is the result.

The edit, shot by Team Captain, Louis Hatchwell, takes in a day on the squad's second training camp of the season. They're currently staying in the magical Tux Diamant chalet right by the highest craft brewery in Austria, Tux 1280,  although Louis did point out with a chuckle ‘as athletes, we don't get to drink that (beer)’.

Since forming in 2006, the Britsh Telemark Team has gone from strength-to-strength representing Great Britain at the highest level on the FIS Telemark World Cup circuit.

Squad member Jasmine Taylor is currently ranked fourth in the world. In fact, during the 2016/17 season, she won more medals at world skiing level than any other British athlete. This coupled with new talent coming up through the ranks means team spirits are running high.

The squad have two more training camps planned in before the Brits and a final camp leading into the  Telemark World Cup in Hintertux on December 1st where they'll be gunning for the win.
