West Yellowstone Ski Festival & Cross-Country Ski Camp announced the dates for its annual training and technique clinic. The event will be held November 24-28, 2015.
In the mid 1980s, longtime local Drew Barney, along with Torbjorn Karlsen and Dick Hunt, started what was then called “Fall Camp” to offer coaches the opportunity to attend clinics. In addition, citizen racers and individuals who wanted to improve their skiing technique were also encouraged to attend. Nearly thirty years later, the cross-country ski camp has devotees who come from around the nation and attend every year.
Through the years the camp has grown and evolved to become a top training and technique camp for the cross-country ski community. The number one goal is to provide skiers a top notch clinic experience, whether they are avid master racers looking for an early season training camp or skiers who simply want to improve their technique. The camp has assembled a high end coaching staff comprised of elite cross-country ski professionals.
Barney commented, “Our first class coaching staff combined with West Yellowstone’s Rendezvous Trail system — which consistently has some of the best early season snow in the country — makes this the ideal place in America to transition from dryland training to on-snow skiing.”
