Tuesdays 10 – 11:30 a.m.
This clinic series is designed to help improve the efficiency of the intermediate skate skier.
·       If you feel like you are working harder than your friends and folks are whizzing by you on the trail and you don’t know why, this clinic series is for you.
·       If you feel like you’ve plateaued, aren’t improving and don’t know how to improve your skiing, this clinic series is for you.
·       If you like skiing with other women who are wanting to have fun and improve their skiing and like being taught by a woman instructor, then this clinic series is for you.

We’d love to have you ski, have fun and learn with us. You’ll be amazed how much change and improvement you can bring to your skiing in 4 weeks. Clinic size limited to 8 women. Participants must be able to ski intermediate terrain.
