Today was our last practice as a team before we head off for fall camp. Tomorrow the second year J2s, J1s and OJs head out to Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, CO with Sverre and Matt. The J3s and first year J2s follow on Sunday with Poppet and Liz. Today we had a nice easy classic ski and started off with some no pole skiing (above) and plenty of drills before turning everyone loose to cruise around on their own. The younger kids finished up their waxing before lunch and packed up the van for Sunday and the older kids are just about finished with packing ski bags for their departure tomorrow. Check back for news and photos from Colorado!

The running drill uphill – run on your rollerskis, run with poles on your rollerskis…. then flow right into a snappy stride.
