We have an exciting change and addition to the trip this year. The trip will be largely on snow basing entirely out of the Sognefjell Hytte. It will be a little shorter and require less in-trip travel. We are excited to announce that Simi Hamilton from the US Ski Team’s Sprint squad will be along on the trip as a guest coach.
Life at Sognefjell centers around skiing twice a day; skating in the morning and classic in the afternoon. There are four great meals a day. We add in a trip down to the Sognefjord, and we complete the “Willie’s” uphill roller ski time trial in honor of our friend Willie Neal.
A lot of top US skiers have enjoyed this one. US Team members Simi and Liz Stephen have both gone twice. Each year is different but every year offers a great way to kick off the summer with superb training. There are always top Scandinavian teams there at the same time. This year we’ll share the trails with the Norwegian National Biathlon Team, and Team Trondelag, one of the top club teams from Trondheim. It is always fun.
This year’s dates are 10-24 June. Ground cost is $2550.
