The a.m. technique portion of this clinic will satisfy the USSA L100 technique requirement. If you have been looking for an L100 technique clinic to get your certification completed, here is your chance! L100 participants are welcome to stay for the for the afternoon physiology session but not required.
Participants are encouraged to rollerski during the technique portion of the clinic. However, rollerskiing is NOT required. We will be staying in the parking lot of the high school so you can easily stay with the group on foot and learn about how to coach ski technique. Parking lot is covered with large solar panels, so we will ski no matter the weather.
