Ladies, are you looking for a supportive environment to try out nordic skiing? Or maybe you’re looking for advice to help you master traditional classic or skate technique? If so, please mark your calendars and join us for the 6th annual Ladies Nordic Ski Expo on Saturday, January 10th, 2015 at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. This is an amazingly fun and social event taught by women for women.
The Ladies Nordic Ski Expo is unique in that it offers an opportunity to receive instruction in the traditional skinny-ski track disciplines of both classic and skate skiing as well as backcountry and telemark techniques. Participants are able to pick and choose the type or types of instruction they want to receive during this day long event. Instructors for the event are the best of the best and include some of the world’s top master skiers. We promise you will receive lots of attention as we strive to keep the student to instructor ratio low in order to maximize learning opportunities.
The Trapp Family Lodge, with its great access to backcountry and telemark terrain, and exceptional facilities and views is the perfect classroom. Also, they have snow-making so we can pretty much guarantee that the conditions will be perfect!
This year we are excited to announce that Louise and Regina Limoge of Vermont Climbing and Adventure School will be our guest speakers after lunch. “After many years of rock climbing, hiking, canoeing, skiing, camping, guiding and traveling around the world, the Limoge sisters opened their own guiding business in the heart of the Green Mountains. Now certified instructors, they take clients into the wilderness to rock climb, hike, canoe, practice yoga, learn about nature, and/or camp out.” Check out more on their website!
