Learn to Loppet

This 23-week training program will make you a strong cross-country skier and prepare you to race in the March Lake Louise Loppet. Long-distance training and skill development will help you to improve technique, speed and efficiency, while commitment and group support will help you to achieve personal goals. Once the snow flies, bi-weekly ski sessions will allow time for personal coaching, technique and pacing practice. The on-snow, midweek ski sessions are held within the Calgary city limits and Saturday ski sessions in the Rockies. Prerequisite: no experience necessary. Includes: 6 informational seminars on fitness/ gear/ waxing, 16 x 60-90 min dryland training sessions, 12 x 1.5 hour mid-week evening ski sessions, 12 x 3 or 4 hour weekend ski days, fitness instruction, on-snow coaching, Foothills Nordic trail maintenance fees. Participants are responsible for transportation, ski gear, trail passes and Loppet fees.
