Otters Nordic Ski

We have a couple busy weeks ahead. Be mindful of yourself. Eat, drink and sleep well. Don't forget about the goals you set for yourself. What are you doing today to meet that goal?

Weekly Schedule: Week of January 17

Super Important. As your coaches, we love and care for y'all very much. Please make sure you're taking care of yourself physically and mentally. If finals week and skiing is too much this week, please put school first. It's okay if you miss practice or a meet or need to take off early. If you're going to miss, please let one of us coaches know (helps us plan).

  • Wednesday: Practice at Regional Treatment Center

      • Meet at pool windows by 3:30, dressed and ready to go. Bus leaves door B @ 3:35.

      • It's going to be a little cold, -5 to -7 with a bit of wind out of the north. Please dress appropriately. PLEASE bring a buff/face mask for working out. Rule of thumb, little to no exposed skin. Our time outside will be short and the bus will be nearby if you need to warm up.

      • Plan for a hard, short, high-intensity classic ski. Hydrate and eat well before practice. Consider bringing hydration to practice.

Mark Your Calendars: January 30. Candlelight ski at the Kirkbride. Volunteers will be needed at 5. It'd be great to get some team skiers to help out with set-up and take-down.
