This coming January we're excited to offer our first day-long ski clinic, featuring three incredible coaches and some fantastic learning opportunities!
The Mazama Ski Clinic and Demo Day will be held on Saturday, January 18, 2014, based at the Mazama Community Center. The clinic cost (lunch included) is $100 (Methow Nordic members get 15% off!), and for that you get top-flight instruction from our coaches:
Sam Naney - Methow Endurance coach/co-founder; current professional ski racer
Scott Johnston - Current coach of Sam and the Methow Olympic Development racing team
Alan Watson - Former University of Utah Head ski coach
The clinic will go from 9am - 3pm and will include a sandwich lunch provided by the delicious Mazama Store kitchens. We are limiting participation to the first twenty sign-ups to make sure we've got a great small-group feel, and will do our best to divvy up the groups by ability level so everyone gets the most focused attention. Focuses will include basic and advanced technique in both skate and classic, as well as more specialized instruction (as applicable) in up/downhills, cornering, and wax selection and application.
But that's not all...
We're also psyched to partner with Madshus Skis to offer equipment demos throughout the day. This demo is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC in addition to clinic participants. It will be a rare and exciting chance to try out the latest innovations from the World's foremost Nordic equipment manufacturer. Clinic participants who are anxious to take part in the demos should plan to arrive early to get set up with their demos before the 9am clinic start time.
We'll also be handing out some uber-sweet Helly Hansen Nordic training apparel - only for clinic participants!
Again, we're limiting the participation to the first twenty signups; after that we'll start a waiting list and notify everyone of their status. So get there first and ensure your spot....
Thank you to clinic sponsors:
