Step up to a Garmont-Rottefella NTN package, and step away with $100

Free-heel rebate rewards Garmont-Rottefella skiers with power, precision and the award-winning ‘New Telemark Norm’

WILLISTON, VERMONT (September 26, 2010) – Step up to the control and confidence of a new NTN boot-and-binding package this winter, and step away with a $100 rebate.

Encouraging free-heel skiers to reward themselves with the award-winning control and confidence of NTN (a.k.a. “"New Telemark Norm”) boot-and-binding systems, the first-time offer will launch on Oct. 1, 2010, and run through January 31, 2011.

The rebate applies to the Garmont Prophet men's boot (winner, 2010 Backcountry Magazine Editor's Choice Award), the Garmont Priestess women's boot (winner, 2011 Backcountry Magazine Editor's Choice Award), and the Rottefella NTN binding (winner, 2011 Backcountry Magazine Editor's Choice Award).

“This is an exceptional opportunity for every telemark skier to step up to the exceptional power, control and comfort of NTN boot-and-binding systems,” said Gord Bailey, president of Garmont USA.

For those eager to try it before they buy it, Garmont/NTN demos will be available on the Backcountry Magazine demo tour at multiple locations throughout the country. For a complete list of demo locations and more information about the rebate, visit

NTN systems are wholly unique from their telemark boot-and-binding predecessors, providing exceptional advantages to the free-heel crowd, including step-in convenience, massive underfoot control, injury-preventing sideways release, and powerful symmetric performance.

Winner of the 2011 Editor's Choice Award from Backcountry Magazine, Garmont's Priestess NTN for women is a high performance telemark boot that satisfies a long list of free-heel skiing dreams. The Priestess blends a sweet forward flex and alpine-like torsional rigidity and control, a round toe for easy walking and scrambling, easy binding entry without bending over or twisting around, a free-pivot touring mode, and integrated ski brakes to keep your skis in check. The Priestess boasts Garmont's new Ergo Bellows design for the smoothest, most ergonomic forward flex.

The Prophet NTN for men, winner of the 2010 Editor's Choice Award from Backcountry Magazine, is recognized as the most powerful and precise NTN boot on the marketplace. Utilizing Garmont's unique Power-Wrap overlap construction, the Prophet closely and comfortably follows the foot's anatomy with a “pre-punched” shell shape that closes securely around the foot and allows the ankle and bellows to flex freely. The high overlap stays in close contact with the lower leg for the quickest response and leverage with no tongue gap and subsequent lag time.

Providing a boost of power and control, both the Prophet and the Priestess excel in hard-snow hiking, as they have a softer flex for comfort, and can accept a broader range of crampons for technical ascents. Garmont boots are also the only NTN telemark boots in the marketplace with a replaceable underfoot interface known as a “second heel.
