Ski with Intensity and Friends on Thursdays (SWIFT)

This is a ski group that will focus on some fun hard work. Sessions will be loosely structured around intensity training, with only a bit of technique sprinkled in. Each session will include a warm up, some form of workout, and a cool down. Skiers are expected to be intermediate or advanced, but will be grouped for some diversity within the participants.

Techniques will switch between classic and skating, although will be flexible enough that if someone only wants to do one, they can participate in every session. If the forecast looks cold, the group will probably classic, and if the weather is warmer, then would likely skate (save klister for your kid’s skis or a special race day).

If the weather is frighteningly cold (-15 and windy), sessions will be cancelled. If the weather and season cooperate, there may be a make-up session on the weekend, but no guarantees.

Thursdays 6:00-7:30 pm
13 sessions starting November 30, 2023
December 7, 14, 21
January 4, 11, 18, 25

A good quality headlamp is strongly recommended as the group will occasionally venture off the night loop.
