This is a two day course that teaches the fundamentals of both skate and classic cross-country skiing. Attendees will leave knowing how to apply body positioning, power and timing to enjoy efficient, autonomous skiing on a variety of terrain. Great course for those seeking a new challenge from their primary discipline. Attendees will participate in drills, games, and free skiing. Video analysis will be available and will enhance your personal skiing skills, coaching/teaching skills, and technical knowledge. Attendees will have the opportunity to be evaluated by PSIA instructors and standards and to meet PSIA Level certifications. This is a great experience to fine tune your own personal skiing or create a personal quiver of instructional skills and materials to become a proficient certified ski instructor and join the PSIA Team.  I hope you join us in this clinic lesson to enhance your personal skiing skills and your coaching skills for this winter season with our many programs and events.
