Bragg Creek XC Masters

(Still Space Available)

BCXC Masters Program is built around the principle of having fun while building fitness. This program is for committed athletes who want the fitness to confidently line up on the start line of events like the Lake Louise Loppet or Cookie Race without the pressure of building their season around racing. Participants must be proficient classic and skate skiers with a base fitness to ski comfortably for 90+ minutes. That being said, the program focus is to improve technique and cardiovascular fitness while being tailored to your individual needs. This is not a learn to ski program; it is a ski development and group training program that meets both individual training goals and maintaining group cohesion. The goal is to create sub groups of similar speed to motivate and complete training and instruction sessions with a sense of community unique to Bragg Creek… and to have fun!!

Fridays 11-12:30pm Technique and Training. These sessions will focus on both Skate and Classic Technique with on trail application of lessons. This session will be on Bragg Creek Trails and aligns with BCXC youth programs. All participants will receive direct feedback along with drills for development. Technically sound skiers are efficient skiers, efficient skiers are fast skiers! This session will also include some video sessions and will be conducted occasionally on the teaching grid but primarily on trail. (Headlamps required)

Sunday Morning 9:00-11:00am – Training block. This session will be based from Bragg Creek Trails, however will include travel days to Canmore Nordic Centre, Lake Louise, Peter Lougheed Park, etc and is based on finding the perfect Extra Blue Wax day and fresh corduroy snow! These sessions are longer sessions to provide sufficient time to improve fitness and build off of technique suggestions on Friday evenings. When registering please know travel will be part of these sessions.
