Masters Ski Program at Caledonia Nordic Ski Club.
This program is for Masters skiers (ages 20+) who have a moderate level of fitness coming into December. The focus of the program will be based on making fitness and ski technique improvements towards targeted races in the region or province.
When you sign up for this program you will receive two options of monthly training plan, an at home body weight strength plan, one coached session per week, a waxing clinic, two video technique sessions, and an opportunity to ski with like-minded skiers in our CNSC community.
We will kick things off in Late November with a get together to discuss the program, send you away with a December “prep” training plan so you can be ready to hit the snow sliding in January.
Skiers will get the most out of the program if they are able to skate and classic ski at a comfortable-moderate pace for 1.5-2hrs on hilly and rolling terrain.
You will need skate and classic skiing equipment, basic kick waxes for conditions we face here in Prince George.
We will follow the CNSC race team cold weather cut off policy, being masters athletes we assume you know how to dress and train safely in PG winters. If temperatures are to cold, we will have an inside strength session, or a waxing clinic, or inside session of interest.
Communication Tool- We will use the Coaches Calendar on the CNSC website to help organize ourselves. Email from the leading coach of the session may use email also to communicate needs or schedule changes.
Please work together to wax and be ready to ski at 7:45pm.
Organizational Meeting- Wednesday November 29th 7:45-9:00pm
To help Encourage participation in this meeting, lets do a “Beer Swap”- Bring one beer or drink that you would like to introduce to another person (could be fancy non-alcoholic also). You will have a chance to have a beer or nice drink and talk skiing. Not much better than that! I’ll bring some snacks, you come hydrated and should be fun!
(Bring your Race Event Goal- Which races do you want to target?)
Snow Dates:Wednesday Nights
Check out the BC Masters XC Ski website for more information on events for Masters throughout the province. http://bcmastersxcski.ca/
Registration will be available late August on Zone4.
There are local loppets throughout the season within driving distance of our fair city, including the local Spirit of Rivers Loppet (to be held in February 2018). It would be great to have a Caledonia Nordic presence at each of these loppets. It is more fun to travel and compete, at any level, together. Further discussions on events and travel will occur during the season.
