Our masters clinics serve as a key source of funding for other segments of the Far West community that really need financial support, particularly juniors, seniors, and our coaches who sacrifice so much to lead a career in coaching. ALL of the proceeds from masters programs (after direct expenses) go to fund Far West causes that need your financial support. We hope you enjoy our clinics and programs this season!

Far West Nordic’s on-snow clinics cover a wide range of issues of interest to athletes that wish to compete in XC events.  Intermediate and advanced-level recreational skiers can also benefit from Far West clinics. As masters age, “skiing smarter” becomes more important than ever, so our masters clinics place a significant degree of focus on developing skills to ski as efficiently as possible with a minimum level of effort.

  • On-snow clinics will be led by one of Far West’s will feature a lead coach and may use one or more assistant coaches depending on class size. We will limit class size for on-snow clinics so as to ensure a high quality experience for all participants.  It’s best to sign up early as traditionally our clinics sell out.
  • On-snow clinics will be 2 hours in duration. Clinics that include video analysis will be 3 hours in duration: 2 hours on-snow and 1 hour classroom video analysis.
  • Clinics will be open to non-members for a higher fee which reflects a  true market price.

Please note that any individual attending a Far West Nordic program/clinic at a ski area that involves on-snow skiing will need to have a valid trail pass for the day of the clinic. Individuals are responsible for purchasing their own trail passes; the price of trail passes is NOT included in the cost of the clinic.
