Skate Level 3 – Wednesday 11 AM with Molly, Saturday 11:15 AM with Toni. Mastering V1 poling technique. V1 is the go-to technique for hill climbing, a necessary skill to master for skiing CB trails. Timing, proper body position, changing tempo and alternating sides will be covered.

Performance Group – Tuesday and Thursday at Noon with Murray, Toni & Cam. “Training smarter yields bigger gains than training harder.” This week the focus will be on longer, slower intervals with emphasis on efficient technique. Your choice classic or skate. Key points to focus on will be skiing tall in the hips to keep weight forward, increasing gluteal engagement and glide. High hands and elbows to maximize core engagement. Hill climb tempo changes. More double pole, KDP, V2 & V2A for speed.
