Summer Training Resources

Hello Team!

We just wanted to let you know about a few options for training for this summer courtesy of Boulder Nordic Sports.

Remember the old adage about Nordic: Skiers are made not on snow but in the offseason

  1. Training with Bates Coach James Upham through the BNS Acceleration Project is available several times a week.  Nicholas and Julia Werner and Eli Schair-Rigoletti have already started and would LOVE to have you join them.  FMI: The program description (including information about James) is available HERE and the Athlete Information Form is available HERE. Feel free to contact him directly, too, at jamupham (at)
  2. For some of this training, skiers need Classic and/or Skate roller skis and poles.  The great folks at BNS, Roger and Mark, are happy to help set you up with some very reasonably priced equipment.
  3. At a minimum,  athletes should plan and keep track of their workouts.  There are a number of easy ways to do this — check out THIS DESCRIPTION AND BLANK LOG and/OR THIS WORKOUT OUTLINE.  If you’d like an overview of Summer Training, check out THIS BLOG.  Plus keeping a training log really helps both your coaches and your performance.
