Season-long Masters Programs 

This season we are offering three streams of masters programming. The first is classic only group the second and third groups are classic and skate. Both of these groups are designed for intermediate skiers, folks who are comfortable on their skis. The difference between the groups is one is more focused on technique improvement while the other is focused on fitness (aka more skiing less instruction).

For beginner skiers, check out our 3-week programs.

¬†These groups will be lead by CANSI instructor Rick Watson. Rick’s critical eye and knowledge of the sport will help you improve your technique in a fun, group environment. Rick holds a level 3 CANSI certification and has been training and racing for most of his life.
