Cross country skiing in the summer in Sognefjell, NorwayDear Cross Country Skier,

I am very pleased to announce a magical training opportunity for you. In May of 2008, Jerome Racing and Salomon are hosting an eight-day, on-snow training camp for adult cross country skiers in beautiful Sognefjell, Norway. The Nanuq Training Camp is designed for adult racers of all ability levels who wish to refine their technique and improve their fitness while enjoying some of the best summer skiing in the world.

Your camp will be led by three university coaches with proven track records of success at the national and international levels. Sten Fjeldheim, head coach at Northern Michigan University, is one of America’s leading technique specialists. Ingrid Olson, an assistant coach at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, was recently selected to serve as a wax technician and assistant trip leader by the US Ski Team for a set of junior races in Estonia this winter. And over the past three seasons Ingrid and I have coached five athletes to eight All-America performances at the NCAA National Championships.

You will enjoy daily video analysis and technique drills as well as time for long training sessions through the natural beauty of Norway. We will also incorporate several speed and intensity sessions. Sten, Ingrid and I will make specific recommendations to each skier regarding what he/she can add to a year-round plan to increase fitness and improve race results. With a maximum athlete to coach ratio of 7 to 1, each skier will receive significant personal attention.

Denise Jerome, licensed physical therapist, will provide skiers with individual evaluations to identify muscle imbalances and strength deficits which can impair physical performance. Denise will also lead core-strengthening drills and dynamic warm-up sessions.

Our camp will include nine nights at the beautiful Sognejfellshytta, a tourist lodge located in central Norway. Sognefjellshytta is located in a relatively isolated location near Jotunheimen National Park, between the towns of Lom and Skjolden. The lodge caters specifically to cross country skiers, hikers, cyclists and other active tourists. The summer ski trails begin literally out the back door. We will enjoy three healthy and tasty homemade meals per day at the lodge.

I invite you to join us for this incredible training adventure. Non-training spouses/partners are more than welcome to attend for a reduced fee.

Please contact me with any questions. I am hopeful that you will join us for the Nanuq Training Camp.

Best regards,
Scott Jerome
