Mt Hood Nordic Adult Program

This season we have broken our adult groups into two different sessions based on discipline-Classic or/and Skate.  The sessions will alternate weekends.  If you want to only explore one discipline you will receive exercises and drills to work on and continue to progress until the next session.  Sign up for both and fully immerse yourself in the nordic experience with coached sessions (alternating disciplines) each weekend and suggested exercises to work on balance and strength throughout the season. 

Schedule - Sunday Mornings at 9:30AM

Meet at the Mt Hood Nordic Waxing shed near the bathrooms on Sundays at 9:30.  Sessions will last 9:30-11 AM.  Join for an optional group ski with coaching team after the coached session. Give yourself a goal to shoot for- both sessions are designed to finish before the respective race at Teacup- Classic 2/12, Skate 3/11. You will be ready!

New this year, sessions are broken up into beginner and intermediate groups.  If you are new to Nordic skiing, our team is experienced and led by US Ski and Snowboard Certified Nordic Ski Coaches and will get you moving with confidence and knowledge to ski effectively and efficiently this season and beyond!  If you already know the basics, but want to ski faster and explore proper technique, the intermediate group will expand your knowledge of modern ski technique and skills.

If you have a teenager who is new to skiing, this is most likely the best program to introduce them to Nordic skiing instead of the youth programs.  Email to discuss this or any other questions.
