Jordyn Ross, former NMU skier and arguably the fastest female skier in the Michigan Cup, will be leading our annual season kick-off clinic on Saturday, December 9th.

CLINIC OFFERING VIDEO FEEDBACK! One of the best ways to improve as a skier is to actually see yourself skiing. So, along with realtime coaching, Jordyn will have a pro videographer (Ernie Brumbaugh) film each participant throughout the clinic. Afterwards, Jordyn will provide personalized video feedback!

Clinic Schedule:
Level 1-2 Skate Clinic (beginner/intermediate): 10:00am – 11:00am
Level 1-2 Classic Clinic (beginner/intermediate): 11:30am – 12:30pm

Level 2-3 Classic Clinic (intermediate/advanced): 3:00pm – 4:00pm

The cost per clinic is $15, or two for $25. Space is limited, so sign up soon by clicking the “Get Tickets” link above, calling 800-832-2663, or emailing info@crosscountryski.com.

Stick around for the Toko Wax Clinic at 4:30pm!

Toko Wax guru and Junior Olympic Nordic coach Nick Baic will be demonstrating best practices for both grip and glide waxing, plus tricks of the trade that he has learned through his long career as a skier, coach, and wax tech. He will also highlight some key products from Toko, one of the best wax makers out there. There is no charge for this clinic. *Toko Wax Special – EXTRA 10% off Toko Waxes after the wax clinic!

Following the Wax Clinic is the XC Ski HQ Team Dinner! If you are on our Michigan Cup ski team, or are interested in joining, please join us for our annual Team Potluck Dinner Party after the wax clinic (approx 6:00pm). Bring a dish and/or beverage to pass, and please be sure to RSVP to info@crosscountryski.com.

*A Note on the Weather!
The forecast is currently looking cold enough for us to be able to make plenty of snow for this clinic. However, if the weather turns against our favor and we don’t have enough snow, we will reschedule the ski clinic to December 16th.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters – Amy Powell Ski Clinic & Swix Wax Clinic – December 19, 2015

Please enter the Page ID of the Facebook feed you'd like to display. You can do this in either the Custom Facebook Feed plugin settings or in the shortcode itself. For example [custom-facebook-feed id=YOUR_PAGE_ID_HERE].

Snow or not, we are lucky to have Amy Powell teach a ski clinic this Saturday, December 19th. Amy is one of the most experienced PSIA cross country ski instructors in the Midwest, and is also a fantastic skier and athlete. She has won the Michigan Cup, the Vasa 50k Marathon, and many other races and awards. Amy ran a ski clinic for us last year, and it was a huge success and everyone learned a lot from her unique and interactive teaching style and we could just go on and on about how she’s got a keen eye for form and helped staff racer Mariah a ton with her technique and believe us you’d be a big ol’ dummy to miss this chance for some truly great instruction.
Details, please.

If we do indeed have enough snow to cover the Practice Area, Amy will do a skate clinic from 12:00pm-2:00pm, and a classic clinic from 2:30pm-4:30pm. The cost is $25 for one clinic, and $40 for both.

In the event of a grassy practice area, Amy will run a dry land clinic at 2:00pm for both skate and classic. Amy is confident that there is a ton of ski technique, strengthening, and balance work that can be done without even putting skis on, and we believe her. The cost for the dry land clinic is $20, and it will run about an hour and a half.

And then there’s the Swix Wax clinic, also on Saturday, at 4:30pm. Mike Wagner, our Swix and Fischer rep and an avid XC skier, is going to show the latest and greatest from Swix, the 800-pound gorilla of the wax world with more wins on the World Cup circuit than any other wax company. This clinic is free and will leave you ready to make your skis wicked fast.
