This program is designed for new and returning skiers in grades 9-12 (U18-U16 classes) to train and try nordic ski racing.  The program focuses on developing and improving ski technique, general on-ski skills and continuation/development of classic & skate skiing.

A limited quantity of rental skis, bindings, poles (skiers must purchase their own NNN compatible boots) in “AS IS” condition are available and are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE. The ASC Equipment Rental Contract form must be completed.

Skiers are recommended at HS Level to purchase their own waxable ski equipment for the program. Waxless skis are not suitable for our program. We have a team discount available at Boulder Nordic Sport in Portland, Maine.  We will also help provide a list of Ski Swaps within the region to purchase used gear on Info. night.
