I kid you not – there were many moments when your words played through my mind “I could do this all day long” Grin!!
Most importantly, my favorite part of learning from Dan is that his love and enthusiasm for cross country skiing is contagious. He is able to convey the true joy of this sport in a way that is motivating for skiers of any skill level.”
Time to take notes and practice! Repetition! I agree, the slow and correct approach will be best and safer.”
“Thanks Dan! I had a blast last night even with the winds. I have already told my family members about the class-they are like me-people who “kind of” know how to ski. I can’t wait to get out and practice on trails. I feel so much more confident on hills now.” Ellen after a Downhill on Skinny Skis class at Alpine Valley
“I find myself starting every email back to you with WOW!. Wow! Thank you for the kind words. I had so much fun skiing with you today. I really appreciate your patience, positivity and encouragement. You broke things down in a very understandable and baby-steps way that totally clicked., and I am grateful!”

“Thank you so much for the great lesson!! It gave me great points to focus ones I skied the Korte! The V2 Alt helped me immensely in conserving energy! I was able to get into that great rhythm you focused on and ski across the lake with a nice glide on each ski. I arrived on Main Street with enough energy to give an extra push!!.”
“Hi Dan, Just wanted to send a quick note and say thank you for your coaching and tips. This weekend was a huge success for me and that has a lot to do with you- I had you in the back of my head saying ‘relax’ ‘find the rhythm’. Can’t wait for next year!”
“Hi Dan, your lesson was the best lesson I ever had and you did more than I could have hoped for on Friday night I really appreciate you dedication and enthusiasm. I’ll stay in touch and if the weather cooperates, I would love to have another lesson”
“Dan LaBlanc is the ideal Nordic skiing coach. His ability to adapt to a wide range of skiers’ experiences with infinite patience and good humor creates the perfect environment for his excellent technique instruction to shine through. He can pinpoint where you need improvement and lets you know constructively how to fix it. Whether you’ve never been on skis before or you’ve completed multiple Birkies, do yourself a favor and take a lesson with Dan!”
