Crested Butte, CO – Work off turkey dinner and start the Nordic season off right with cross-country ski clinics and activities at the Crested Butte Nordic Council’s annual Thanksgiving Training Camp, taking place in the scenic southwestern Colorado resort town this year on Nov. 26–27. Skate and classic Nordic skiing and racing clinics for various levels will be offered by professional instructors, including three-time Olympian Ingrid Butts, Masters Nordic World Champion Murray Banks, and Ross Matlock, a PSIA Nordic and Telemark examiner.nWith all clinics held at elevations in excess of 8,800 feet, camp participants of all levels will get a jump on conditioning for a successful season of competitive racing, recreational touring or fun winter exercise. A silent auction/gourmet dinner, wax clinic, active isolated stretching class, and movie night featuring the film “Fire on the Mountain” that tells the story of America’s 10th Mountain Division are also on the agenda.
Beginner clinics cost $40 and intermediate and advanced clinics $50. Clinics are designed to enhance and improve skills and are limited to approximately 12 people in each, so register early.
