This program is built for intermediate and advanced skiers who want to improve their fitness and ski technique in both classic and skating styles in a fun group atmosphere.  Group training and varied sessions build motivation. Evening sessions target strength and high intensity.  Weekends are focused on long distance to build aerobic capacity and technical development.  On-snow Tuesdays are focused on technique.

Skiers will be split into groups by ability.  How far can you comfortably ski in 3 hours?  10-20km (Chill group), 20-30km (Stylin’ group), 30-55km (Racing group)?  If you are not comfortable skiing 10-20km, the Adult Learn to Ski program will be a better option for you.

Racing in the AB cup series and other local loppets is encouraged.  Waxing support will be provided for group members who wish to race.
