Cross Country

Cross Country ski training in Bend, Oregon during the spring has been a tradition for many clubs and teams since the mid-70’s. Many skiers can remember awesome training experiences in the Central Cascade Mountains. The SSWSC XC Program has marked the 10 days after school finishes as Bend Camp. this year we took 21 athletes, from age 14 to 21. The combination of large snow accumulation through the winter and cool high desert nights, make for excellent skiing conditions. This year was exceptional by all standards. 25 kilometers were groomed nightly by the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center. We were able to log up to 15 hours of on snow time during our stay, which correlates to improved technique and ski fitness. There are many activities available beside skiing in Bend, such as world class MTB trails, superb running trails, and the beautiful Deschutes River for water sports. We are all looking forward to next June.

Nordic Combined

Nordic Combined just completed their first training camp of the year!  Our coaches led eight SSWSC athletes and 4 visiting athletes to northern Minnesota for a 9-day camp.  Our athletes logged twice the number of jumps they get in a typical week as well as tons of time roller skiing on the Mesabi Trail!  We finished off the camp with a day trip to Duluth, MN and a 12K time trial with the U.S. Biathlon National Training Group.  Our kids loved the challenge of racing against some of the best U20 biathletes in the country!  We also had a team activity every night that helped build the team dynamic.  Overall, it was an awesome trip and we’re fully ready to take on the rest of the season!!
