The White Pass Nordic Team is for the 6 – 18-year-old aspiring cross country athlete looking to develop their skills and push their skiing to the next level. The program runs for 12 sessions (mostly on Saturdays) from late December through Mid-March, with training from 9:30am - noon. The team travels to approximately 1-2 events per year (travel is optional).  The focus will be primarily on classic cross-country skiing, with exposure to skate skiing as well. We will cover all aspects of the sport, from skiing and racing technique to ski waxing and equipment prep.
