Olympian Lindsey Weir Dehlin will lead a Nordic Ski Clinic on October 24-25 in Traverse City, MI. There are three sessions geared to different levels of experience.
Mix a small group of skiers, coffee, VO2 testing, extensive dryland and rolleski drills, video, Dartfish video analysis, and a great coach, and you get one of the best technique clinics ever.
