Intermediate Skate – Wirth, Wednesday Evenings
Focus on your skate skiing technique all winter long. This skate-only group will help you become a much more proficient skier by focusing on balance, technique, efficiency, and pacing strategies. As the season progresses we will add more physically challenging workouts while continuing to emphasize good technique. We’ll cover all skate techniques, and spend time on downhills, cornering, transitions, mass start strategies, and pacing. Training will focus on 30-50km races, with the Loppet and Birkie as the main training goal.
Combination of technique instruction and physical training. Every session will include some type of intervals or specific ski strength.
