SKI LOTS. PLAY LOTS.
Lessons, Guided Tours, and Clinics
Whether you would like to tour or race, skate or stride, I can help you develop great technique. I am a self-avowed ski nerd and continue to attend PSIA clinics annually so that I can stay current with what’s going on in the world of skiing. In addition to all the technical detail, I am passionate about skiing with relaxed, rhythmic flow. It’s all about the dance!
If you’re new to the sport, you will learn from the start how to glide and float rather than shuffle and struggle. Cross country skiing is only as strenuous as you make it. I can teach you the magic of nearly effortless skiing and then you decide where the sport takes you.
If you’re a veteran skier, are you content with your efficiency? Would you like to ski farther or faster with less effort? Do you know, and USE, all the different gears? Tons of folks don’t. Don’t get stuck in the V1 or Shuffle Club, call me and DANCE all the way to Hayward or around the long loop at your favorite trail!
Lessons are always relaxed, fun-filled, encouraging, and packed with info!
SKIING TAKES THE SUCK OUT OF WINTER!
What a beautiful motion! The diagonal stride is so smooth and rhythmic when done correctly. It’s all about the GLIDE! Without gilde it’s all work! Learn the secrets of glide and shifting gears between Diagonal, Double Pole, and Kick Double Pole.
What a Blast! Skate sking can be fast but without proper instuction the new skier will want to throw the skiis in the woods and an experienced skier will make it all work. Did you know that skating is nealry effortless? Let me show you the secrets and all the gears you need for a smooth trip though the woods.
Are you afraid of downhills? Do you wish you had the skills to let it rip on the hills rather than riding the brakes? Do you admire the guys that step turn around corners at a high rate of speed? Teaching downhill skills on ski trails is a challenge so I’ve partnered with my friends at Alpine Valley in East Troy, WI to bring out students on skinny skis. The First Tracks beginner hill and Magic Carpet surface lift are a safe and fun enviroment for learning!
PRIVATE LESSONS – 1 HR
This is the absolute best way do a lesson. All attention is on you and the lesson is tailored specifically for you. If you’re a beginner the lesson will be at the right pace for you and feedback will be specific for your needs. If you’re an experienced skier we will always visit the fundamentals first, and then if you want to focus on a specific topic, we will zone in on it.
SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS – 1 HR / 2-6 PEOPLE
Skiing is a social activity and what’s better than playing in the snow with friends and family! My best times sledding were always with my friends!! In small group lessons, you might lose just a little special attention but I’ve become pretty good at helping everyone work on what they need. Everyone in the lesson needs to be doing the same technique, skate or classic.
