Adult Development (>23 years)

Adult Development 2-day

Our Adult Development program is for adults aged 23+, and is geared to skiers with basic ski skills who would like to improve their fitness and skill level. Many athletes start off taking ENSC Adult Lessons and move on to Adult Development if interested in joining a group that trains Sept to March. Athletes will receive technique instruction for both classic and skate skiing. Focus is on fundamental technique development with skate skiing focused on upgrading beginner ability. There is also a fitness component to this program, including both dryland and on-snow fitness elements. Skiers have the opportunity to participate in intra-club races, loppets, and Alberta Cup races if desired. Coaching support is available to help you improve your technique and performance.
