We offer the Lollipopper program to skiers of all ability levels; from the first time beginner to the future racer. Our goal is developing each individual's skiing skills while having a terrific time on skis. We introduce aspects of Skate and Classic technique and basic fitness training, as well as a general appreciation of and respect for the Nordic environment. Participants are welcome and encouraged to race in local races. Athletes are arranged in groups based on skill, speed and social needs. Athlete to Coach ratio: 5:1. Individuals have the choice of either a Tuesday or a Thursday session. We will accept up to 15 for each session and sign up for either day will be managed on a first come, first served basis.

Cross Country Training Systems
We often receive questions about why we have set up our teams and program offerings like we do. The Jackson Hole Ski Club Nordic Program Staff takes time and energy to develop the plans for each of our Nordic Programs. These are designed to respect each social and biological age window, and to take advantage of the learning opportunities in each stage. Each of our offerings is consciously designed to link with the next. We use and adapt the work of top programs around the country and of national systems from the worlds' best ski nations including the US, Canada, Sweden and Norway. The athletes' individual needs and the programs' goals steer the ship. The Training Systems are charts, and sources for ideas. For more information about the US System, please check out the following. Athletes on the Lollipop team are in phases 1 & 2
