Motivation: The objective will be to improve skate skiing technique for more efficient use of energy and faster race times. Many of us seek continual improvement in our shooting skills—let’s have that outlook for skiing too!
Eligibility: WBA members who are experienced skate skiers.
Clinic Site: The Stevens Pass Nordic Center is located on U.S. Hwy 2, five miles east of the summit of Stevens Pass. Do not buy a trail pass at the Nordic Center; it is covered in your entry fee.
The Instructor: Scott Waichler is a WBA member and a Level 3 Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) and Level 100 USSA cross-country ski coach. Scott is based in Winthrop, WA and coaches for Methow Valley Nordic SEF.
Clinic Day Format and Schedule
9:00 to 9:30 am: On site check-in at the Nordic Center (pre-registering is required for this event).
9:30 am to 3 pm: We will ski together up to the range area to warm up and take advantage of the terrain variety there. In the morning we will review key aspects of good skate skiing technique and do some fun exercises as a group. In the afternoon participants will rendezvous with Scott for one-on-one attention at preset times and location. You will hopefully end the day with a clearer understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and some useful ideas for continuing to improve your technique.
Lodging: With a few exceptions the nearest lodging is in Leavenworth, 30 miles east of the Nordic Center. Leavenworth offers numerous choices and varied rates. Check on line at www.leavenworth.org.
