Adult XC

Adult X-C (Ages 18+)

Program Details

This program is designed for intermediate and advanced skiers who want to improve their fitness and ski technique in a fun group atmosphere. Group training and varied intensity sessions build motivation and speed.   Having a race or event to train towards helps with motivation.  As a result, there will be several options including the Yuletide Blast, 2x O-Cup races, Hardwood and Leprechaun Loppets.  

Practices contain a balance of skate technique, intensity and endurance skiing.
