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 Teewinot Team are in Phases 2 & 3.
