Broughton Beach Parking Lot | Portland, OR

A chance for experienced XC skiers to get introduced and try out roller skis safely and with professional instruction.
About this Event

What: introduction to rollerskiing. A 1.5 hour clinic on safe practices, control and balance on rollerskis, and some additional information on modern ski technique.

Who: This is not a "learn to ski" lesson. Participants should be comfortable with on-snow ski technique, this clinic is about how to transfer those skills (safely!) to dryland training. While the emphasis is on skate skiing, there will be a limited number of classic rollerskis available as well. The skills addressed in the clinic will benefit either style.

What to bring: Participants will need to provide their own skate or classic boots and poles. Poles will need to be of high quality "track" type, as it is imperative that the poles have basket tips made of carbide steel (found on all performance level XC poles). Bike helmets are mandatory, and gloves are highly advised. Rollerskis will be provided generously from the Mountian Shop Rental Fleet. Given the limited number of rollerskis, a reservation is required. If you have your own roller skis and just want the clinic, please still register.

Cost: this is a fee clinic run by the Coaching Staff at Teacup/Mt Hood Nordic. As a free event, if pleased with the event a donation to Teacup will be appreciated!

Karl has been sharing his love for skiing for more years than he has digits and is a USSA Level 200 coach. Kelly is the Program Coach at Teacup and has been helping Karl for 7 years now. We work hard to help the Teacup Nordic skiing community enjoy skiing by becoming more efficient, balanced, and confident. And also work some fun into it!

Where: Broughton Beach parking lot and the Marine Drive bike path. This is not a closed course and we will be working to be mindful of traffic and other users.

When: June 26, 9am- Please arrive 15 minutes early to pick up rollerskis.
