Come and join our professional coaching staff to get a “jump start” on your 2017 – 2018 ski season during the Yellowstone Ski Festival. The staff provides a solid understanding of technique, and gives you tools and drills to gain efficiency and strength at the camp and throughout your ski season.
The coaching staff is composed of an elite group of XC ski professionals which includes retired world class skiers, coaches, and professional instructors. Coaches will rotate through groups every ½ day session so you will get exposure to different coaches throughout your clinic. The coaches think snow and skiing just about year-round, and are ready to give you just the tips and techniques you need to launch your season with the best focus for you.
This is no stand-around-and-learn kind of deal either. The coaches know that the best way ingrain effective movement is through practice. Plan to log some k’s. You’ll also get feedback in the dose that’s right for you. While some just need a new focus and mileage, others benefit from a more consistent stream of information about whether and how much they’re performing the task to the desired degree. The coaches know how to pace the flow of information, and offer up a great balance of new information, drills, and practice.
Not only will you get great instruction and a fitness bump for skiing 1, 2, 3 or 5 days, but you’ll be immersed in a touchstone event for the cross-country ski culture, with on snow demos, an indoor expo, and lectures in the evening. Event organizers even bring in a keynote speaker to entertain and inspire. There’s even sessions called Women, Wine and Wax, and Whiskers, Whiskey and Wax.
Some of the special offerings include:
- 5 and 3-Day Skate & Classic Technique for Performance (all levels)
- 3-Day Skate & Classic Camp for Master Racers
