Learn to ski better or learn to instruct other skiers how to ski better!
UPDATED 5/30/2019: Andy Liebner is holding a set of 16 different group technique, training, and time trial sessions this summer in southern Michigan.
Are you happy with your overall ski experience or would you like to be faster and have a more diverse skiing experience?
Athletes and coaches are invited to take part in the CXC Nordic On-Snow Ski Camp and Festival in West Yellowstone to kickoff the season.
Our goal is to give young skiers an opportunity to ski with their peers, advance their skiing skills and have FUN. Skiers of all abilities are welcome (parents of young skiers are more than welcome too).
It does not yield much good to focus on strengthening our strengths (training what we are already good at), but rather trying to identify our weaknesses and then turning them into strengths.

Check out the dryland exercises in the second half of the video. This 5 day camp featured over 100 athletes and 30 coaches from Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland.
An excellent CXC Skiing video showing how to ski walk (one foot always on the ground) and ski bound (some air time) with correct technique.
This workout focused on 15-30 second efforts. While the longer duration can get away from pure speed, we focus on high-quality (L1 / L2) distance training between each interval to prevent accumulating fatigue.
5 x 3 min intervals building from high threshold (L3) to maximum effort on the last effort, 3-4 minute recovery between each. We choose safe roads, and a gradual grade with smooth pavement to ensure high speed.
Nothing in the calendar for the next thirty days.
