  • Join Kongsberger Ski Club for local skate, classic races
    Our friends in the local Kongsberger Ski Club have set their 2014-15 race schedule -- now all we need is snow! Check out the current schedule.

    Whether you're a classic or skate skier, novice or experienced racer, these friendly competitions are a great way to enjoy the wonderful groomed trails at the Cabin Creek ski area, off Interstate 90 at exit 63. Races range in length from 5K to the grueling Ozbaldy 50K.

    See you out there!

  • Start the season with dryland training at Woodland Park
    Get out your ski poles, running shoes and head lamps because it's time for our annual dryland training sessions to begin!!

    When: Tuesday evenings, 6:45-8:15 p.m.

    Where: Woodland Park (meet by tennis courts near the soccer fields/track)

    What to bring: Classic length (or shorter) poles, running gear/shoes and HEADLAMP with extra batteries (a headlamp that works is essential!). 

    These workouts are really great for specific strength building and basic aerobic endurance to prepare you for the upcoming Nordic ski season. We start with stretching, and then do a circuit workout in the woods with stations for step ups, dips, various hill bounding drills, push ups, etc., with pole-jogging in between.  

    Skiers of all abilities are encouraged to come, especially junior racers! 

    For more information: Please email Marla at marlajh@aol.com to RSVP (tell and bring your friends!)
