Jeff Schloss and Andy Pasternak present:
Sunday November 6, 2011
1:00pm at the Truckee Rec Center
This season’s presentation on cross-country training principles will feature Jeff Schloss and Andy Pasternak. The goal of this presentation is to provide a medical and experience-based understanding of training principles that can be used as a foundation for individual training during the entire season. The presentation will be helpful to cross-country skiers of all ability levels, ranging from recreational skiers who want to optimize their fitness based on limited time availability to beginning and experienced racers who want to improve their performance and their endurance. It will be valuable to skiers of all ages from juniors to masters. The presentation will be conducted jointly by two of the area’s leading sports physiologists and coaches, Jeff Schloss and Andy Pasternak, MD.
Far West Nordic’s comprehensive waxing clinic will be conducted by two of the area’s foremost wax gurus: Glenn Jobe and Ralph Johnson.
Glenn and Ralph have decades of experience testing various kick and glide wax products from most manufacturers. The Tahoe area experiences challenging waxing conditions due to wide fluctuations in temperature, humidity, and the water content of the snow not only during the course of a season, but during the course of an individual race. From dealing with these challenging conditions, Glenn and Ralph have found that the products of some wax manufacturers work well in certain conditions, while the products of other wax companies work best in other conditions. Their learnings will be shared as well as their know how of how best to apply which types of waxes and how to decide which base structure is best under which conditions. The clinic will cover both kick and glide waxing, but there will be somewhat more focus on kick waxing.
