This stage in nordic programming introduces basic endurance training concepts. Skiers should have a minimum of 2 years of nordic experience (or other similar endurance sport experience and the commitment to dedicated technique training). Skiers focus on technique and terrain transitions, rhythm, flow and speed development in both classic and skating. Skiers are responsible for appropriate ski care, including classic and skate waxing. Local and intra-squad competitions are offered monthly. Royal Gorge resort season pass is included in the cost of the program.
