MVN Members Clinic
January 11-12, 2020
This weekend ski clinic for adult MVN members is a great way to get lots of coaching in a short period of time. Two full days of instruction based at the Mazama Community Club, one day of skating and one day of classic, with a catered lunch each day. Small class sizes based on ability, from Beginners to Advanced.
Methow Valley Nordic offers classes for a full range of abilities, from beginner to advanced. Class sizes are small, generally not more than eight, so you get plenty of individual attention. You must be a member to take a class, but it’s easy to join MVN here.
Each class meets once a week for eight weeks in January and February, except the fitness classes which start in December and meet for twelve weeks. Half the classes are classic and half are skating, with the actual technique of each class determined weekly based on snow conditions. Classes meet at a variety of trailheads around the valley.
Here’s a quick run down of ability levels: beginners can shuffle around, advanced skiers can move pretty fast, and other skiers are in between. If you are unsure of your ability, please use your best judgement. We will be happy to help you change groups after classes begin to find the best fit for you.
