NewsWomen's Nordic Training Group has Strong Presence in Stowe

Trina Hosmer, whom some of you may know as a very fast ski racer, NENSA member, volunteer, and co-coordinator of the very successful NENSA Women's Day festivities, doesn't stop there. With boundless enthusiasm, Trina runs a training group just for women in Stowe, Vermont.

A training group that caters just to women in and of itself is rare, but to see 25 women show up on a Friday at 3:00 pm was incredible! Trina invited me to visit her group last Friday to introduce them to NENSA and help instruct. I gladly accepted, eager to have an opportunity to work with her in a such a scenic setting.

I knew that while these women are not racers, they are interested in fitness and enhancing their xc ski experience this winter. What I did not expect was the large turnout the group produces on a weekly basis (and it's growing!), nor the motivation and enthusiasm these women posess! Trina runs a tight ship – “there is not a moment to waste!” – and she fits a lot into each session. It is obvious that she truly cares about what she is doing.

After a warm up run, Trina led the women through a stretching routine while I explained a bit about skate body position. We then took the group through several dryland technique drills that encompassed V1, V2, and V2 alternate. There are not many recreational skiers I know who so clearly understand the differences between these three techniques! It quickly became apparent that Trina has done a great job and that these women have done their homework. Next came a relay – Trina has a neat concept for a dryland relay which gives the participants a chance to practice V1, V2 and V2 alternate, all while having an informal team atmosphere.

All in all, it was a great afternoon and I would not be surprised to see this group continue to grow by leaps and bounds!
