XC Ski Headquarters - Ski Clinic, Fast Wax Clinic, & Team Dinner - December 6, 2014

Our annual season kick off ski clinic takes place from 10:00am – 12:00pm (skate), and 1:00pm – 3:00pm (classic). If there is no snow, we will run a dryland clinic, so either way, snow or not, be sure to attend and receive undoubtedly some of the best technique training available from Amy Powell, former MI Cup Champion, Vasa 50km champion, Level 3 PSIA certified ski instructor, .and all around great skier and coach. The cost of the clinic is $25/session or both for $40. Pre-register by emailing info@crosscountryski.com

After the ski clinic is our annual wax clinic at 4PM. This year, Fast Wax founder Dan Meyer will be giving the clinic, which will be highly informative and of interest to both racers and recreational skiers. He will go over waxing technique for skating and classic, and will also highlight some key products from increasingly popular, USA-based wax company. There is no charge for this clinic.

The XC SKI HQ Team dinner follows the wax clinic, beginning at 6pm. Come join the 2004, ’07, ’08, ‘09, ’10 ’13, and 2014 Michigan Cup Champions (also the ’10, ’11 and 2013 Brumbaugh Cup Champions) in our annual kick-off potluck dinner, where we’ll introduce new team members, review last year’s performance, and strategize on how to bring home the MI and Brumbaugh Cups in 2015. Other topics will include technique, team training dates, and upcoming race info, and we will also unveil our new team uniforms!

This event always ends up being a lot of fun, so even if you think you might only do one race this season, come and enjoy this annual gathering of the most fun-loving skiers in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Don’t forget, we are very welcoming to new team members! Our team spans a wide range of age and ability, and members are always willing to help out fellow skiers.
