Back by popular demand is our classic ski clinic. This year it will be led by renowned Far West coach and Olympian Glenn Jobe. Glenn was an Olympic Biathlete in the 1980 Olympic Games, was the 1981 National Biathlon 20 km champion, as well as a former Far West Nordic head coach.  He was the founder of both the Kirkwood and Tahoe Donner Nordic centers and has been coaching Far West Junior skiers since 1977.

We’re scheduling this clinic before the Tahoe Rim Tour to give Far West members time to improve their classic techniques and get “on-course” instruction from some of Tahoe’s best classic skiers. This clinic is geared to intermediate and advanced classic skiers looking to improve their skills and race performance. This clinic will include 2 hours of “on snow” time where coaches will review various aspects of how you classic ski, help you correct bad habits, and identify opportunities for improving your skiing. After two hours of on-snow instruction, we will spend an hour reviewing video -where you will learn from analysis of your technique and in comparison to the technique of others.

Note: You’ll need a Tahoe XC trail pass for the day. Far West members can present their membership card to receive a full day pass at the half day rate.
