About the Ski Clinics:
The 2003 Yellowstone Nordic ski clinics will be conducted during Thanksgiving
week. Participants may choose from 3 different clinics: the traditional 3-day
clinic will be November 27-29, a women’s clinic is also offered on the
same dates and the 5-day clinic will be November 25-29.
The clinics are open to all levels; beginners to advanced. Each day of the
clinic skiers will receive two on-snow sessions from our staff of elite instructors.
Additional evening classroom sessions will focus on technique, waxing and training.
Come and join the staff of Olympic and high-level coaches to get a "jump
start" on your skating and classic techniques for the 2003-2004 ski season!
