Requirements for team participation:

1. No previous experience necessary

2. A willingness to learn and improve on your own personal experience level



1. To provide an opportunity in a team atmosphere for students to experience the sport of Nordic Skiing.

2. Knowing that all team members will start with varying abilities, to improve and grow in those abilities.

3. To participate and experience true Nordic racing in a meet.

4. All team members will learn to wax skis and take care of personal equipment.



Equipment requirements:

1. Nordic skis, boots and poles.

 We will train for both techniques in the Nordic world. Classic and Skate.  


Option 1. It is possible to find one pair of skis that will do both. (very good for the beginner) and one pair of boots that is good for both.


Option 2. A pair of skis for each technique.  


 Check with local ski businesses for season long rentals if you do not own skis.  All in town are good and can help you.  Bindings on skis are not universal fit. Make sure your boots are the right system for your skis. Try them in the store before getting them to the trails.



2.   Winter clothing

      A quick lesson in how to dress for success...

       - layers, layers, layers ... Bottom layer of wicking (Under Armor, Columbia, Mountain Hardware, etc. ) long underwear, tops and bottoms. Ski tights or lightweight fleece pants, lightweight fleece top, wind pants and  jacket.  Reserve the heavy jacket for the bus.  Hat and gloves. Cotton sweat pants and sweat shirts, jeans etc. soak up water and do not dry. They are not safe in cold conditions. Cotton kills.


3. Water bottle and somehow to carry it.  Hydration packs with tubes freeze if not worn under a jacket.


4. Doctors Physical form, if you do not have one on file from another sport this school year.
