Registration for 2020-2021 Season is closed

We plan to offer in person programming while following the guidelines of the Alberta Health Services, Nordiq Alberta, Nordiq Canada, Biathlon Alberta and Biathlon Canada. If these guidelines change to become more restrictive, we may need to switch to virtual training via zoom.  If this occurs we will work to resume in person training as quickly as possible.

Program Description

Ski Fitness is an adult program coached by passionate and qualified Masters athletes/instructors. The program is capped at 25 participants. Organized workouts focus on fitness and improving ski technique and typically include: ski-specific strength; balance, agility and movement; fitness; and technique components. You will learn new drills to improve your skiing, working on both classic and skate technique. This program starts with dryland training in mid-September. On-snow sessions begin as soon as possible and are primarily held at Confederation Park Golf Course in Calgary. West Bragg Creek and Canmore Nordic Centre are back up skiing locations chosen when ski conditions in Calgary are poor.
