2014 Clinic Registration is open! 

 

There are several clinics to choose from.  Please page down to see them all.  Clinic registration includes trail pass for duration of clinic.  Please direct all clinic related questions to Emily Lovett: emilym@springsips.com or Drew Barney: (406) 646 9379 (evenings)

Something to consider when choosing a clinic:  The 3 day and 5 day clinics are two of the best we offer.  All clinics includes the top notch coaching, however we find that the 3 day or 5 day format gives the skier valuable time on snow with a variety of coaches.  It's often the third day where skiers feel a "break through" and develop more confidence on their skis. 

5-Day Skate & Classic Race Technique, Training, Tactics (Tues. Nov. 25 – Saturday Nov. 29):   $395

This clinic has changed slightly this year to offer race-focused skiers a clinic to kick off their season.   If you are an intermediate to advanced skier who trains regularly and would like in-depth focus on race technique, training and tactics, this clinic is for you.  On snow sessions will include: technique work to develop efficiency and power; training concepts including endurance, intensity, strength, speed, rest & recovery.   Each day will begin with a short indoor session to introduce the day’s plan followed by two on-snow sessions, ½ day (morning) classic skiing and ½ day (afternoon) skate skiing.  Clinic participants should be in good physical shape and have been training regularly over the summer and fall.  Clinic participants should be sure to have both classic (waxable) and skate skis for this clinic.

 

The 2-Day Skate & Classic Tune Up (Tues. Nov. 25 – Wed. Nov. 26):  $195 

This clinic is open to all level skiers who want to become more efficient in both classic and skate techniques.  Each day will begin with a short indoor session to introduce technique followed by two on-snow sessions, ½ day (morning) classic skiing and ½ day (afternoon) skate skiing.  The focus for the clinics will be on technique with specific attention to efficiency and power on varying terrain.   Participants will be divided into groups based on ability.  Clinic participants should be sure to bring both classic (wax-able) and skate skis to West Yellowstone.

 

3-Day Skate & Classic Technique for Performance (Thur. Nov. 27 – Saturday Nov. 29):  $280   

The clinic is open to all level skiers who want to become more efficient in both classic and skate techniques.  Each day will begin with a short indoor session to introduce technique followed by two on-snow sessions, ½ day (morning) classic skiing and ½ day (afternoon) skate skiing.  The focus for the clinics will be on technique with specific attention to efficiency and power on varying terrain.   Building your training base will come naturally as we spend significant time on skis throughout the clinics.  The more advanced skier groups will address training concepts (speed, strength, agility) and race tactics in on snow sessions.  Participants will be divided into groups based on ability.  Clinic participants should be sure to bring both classic (waxable) and skate skis to West Yellowstone. 

 

Women 3-Day Skate & Classic Technique for Performance (Thur. Nov. 27 – Sat. Nov. 29):  $280
