Intermediate Skate – Skill and Drills – Hyland, Tuesday Mornings
Focus on your skate skiing technique all winter long. Training will focus on 30-50km races, with the Loppet and Birkie as the main training goal.
Training sessions will have an emphasis on technique learning. This class will focus on skate skiing workouts with an emphasis on Agility + Balance instruction. We’ll cover all skate techniques, and spend time on downhills, cornering, transitions, mass start strategies, and coordination. Each session will also include a training component to help quickly improve your technique and your ski specific fitness. We will use video review quite often in the small group format. We will often work on downhill skills (slaloms, higher speed turns), as well as long uphill climbing intervals. In the small group format we strive for a coach to athlete ratio of 1:10.
