About This Activity

Want to be stronger on the trails this winter? We can't change the elevation or terrain, but we can help you ski with better technique and build ski specific strength. 

Coaches Emily Tilden and Greta Olafsen are once again offering a summer training opportunity.

You DO NOT need to be an elite skier to participate. You DO NEED to be reasonably fit, familiar with balancing on skis, and willing to show up and get better. If you are consistently going to any of the gyms in town, you are capable of this. If you have any questions about whether this program is appropriate for you, feel free to send Emily an email at emilymtilden@gmail.com explaining your current physical condition and skiing goals so that we can determine if this program would be an appropriate fit. We can make adjustments for alternatives to running, as well as a wide variety of fitness and experience levels.

Session Descriptions:

Rollerski Training Group: This session is a coached training session where there will be limited skill development drills, some specific strength exercises (ie double pole, single stick, no pole skiing) as well as general practice of terrain appropriate techniques. Participants should have some experience on rollerskis and feel comfortable safely navigating traffic while on rollerskis.

Running and Bounding Interval Training Group: This session is a coached training session utilizing ski walking, ski bounding and running in an interval format. Participants should be familiar with the concepts of these exercises, but do not need to be proficient in the techniques. This session will address technique efficiencies as well in improving cardiovascular fitness.

Skills & Drills: This session is technique intensive utilizing both on-foot as well as rollerskiing modes of training. We will review and practice basic ski skills such as body position, balance and patterning. This session is appropriate for both beginners as well as more experiecned skiers looking to perfect their form. We will alternate weeks on foot and on rollerskis. If you are curious about how dryland training can help your skiiing, this is a perfect introductory session.
