XC Preseason Conditioning Clinic

Get psyched for when the snow flies! Summer sports like hiking, biking, running and swimming are great for keeping us aerobically fit, but they don't address the specific muscles and motions used in cross country skiing. Join us on Saturday mornings for our “dryland” sessions to tune-up your technique and enhance your ski fitness.

Skiers of all ability and fitness levels are welcome to join the fun and meet fellow XC enthusiasts at this five-week series, which includes:

  • Mini band strengthening
  • Balance training
  • Agility training
  • Plyometric training
  • Nordic walking (technique with hiking poles) interval training
  • Technique review

Starting at just $50 for members, it's the deal of the century for a five-week series with more than 11 hours of personalized training. Sign up with your ShopTD account using the link below. Questions? Email xc@tahoedonner.com.
