XC on-trail Help

Date(s) - Tue Mar 03 2020
10:15 am - 1:00 pm


There are always experienced skiers willing to help you improve. You just have to ask by emailing coordinator at sinup10@canmoreseniors.org and explaining what you need.
For the rest of the season all queries will be dealt with in the course of exploring the trail system.

Meet in Daylodge North end room (not fireplace) at 10:15 with gear packed and skis waxed to depart at 10:30.

We may split into a more distance oriented (few-stops) group and a help group (stop as needed and discuss anything relevant to day-touring) if warranted.

Possible Menu – A La Carte

• Arms, shoulders, and poles

• Assessing the trail ahead

• To be in track or not in track

• Gripping the track around downhill curves

• Steeper hills, and when to bail

• Why practising with your day pack matters

• Learning to lead
