Video by Matt Whitcomb of the US Ski Team training in Gällivare, Finland. Great footage of V1 technique, plus a litte V2 and some classic. Look at the difference in tempo between easy distance and diagonal stride speeds!
The official start of the Yellowstone Ski Festival is just days away. The Rendezvous Ski Trails are groomed and in “race ski” shape. There is a diverse and exciting line-up of on-snow action and evening activities planned for Thanksgiving week.
Twenty youth cross country ski programs will get a boost this winter thanks to funding from the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF). The Foundation recently awarded $15,000 to programs around the country targeted to youth skiers.
Light snow is falling outside and the weatherman is calling for more. There are less than seven days to go and almost all of them have a snowflake in the forecast. The Rendezvous Ski Trails were rolled this morning and we are skiing in town.
There is no better way to start off the cross-country ski season than a Thanksgiving week clinic. West Yellowstone’s three-day option is the most popular and available in women’s only or mixed groups. The Nordic clinics are open to all level skiers.
