U10 Nordic Combined [Ages 7–9]
This is a beginner Nordic Combined program in which participants can utilize Nordic jumping and cross country equipment for a well-rounded Nordic skiing experience. Athletes can explore the fundamentals of both disciplines and gain confidence and skill in a fun environment. Jumping takes place on the bump jumps, HS20 and the HS30 meter jumping hills. Dryland training will run until on-snow training begins. Optional competitions are available through the Hitchens Brothers’ Wednesday Night Jump Series, Steamboat Cup Series, and through local and USSA jumping, cross country and Nordic combined competitions.
- Minimum requirement: Successful completion of Little Vikings or beginner to intermediate skiing skills.
- Fees include Nordic jumping equipment, but participants must have their own cross country skate skiing equipment and a ski pass to Howelsen Hill. First year U10 athletes are encouraged to start on alpine equipment which is not provided and then progress into the Nordic jumping equipment.
- A USSA competitor membership is required to compete in USSA sanctioned events.
