Video Analysis Workshops

Take your technique to the next level by joining one of our one day video analysis workshops. These one day sessions take place at Whistler Olympic Park and are held in small groups of six skiers only. You can sign up for classic or skate and in the morning we will video you on flats and hills doing all the techniques for climbing and descending. The afternoon is spent indoors one on one during 30 min time slots with the head coach reviewing the video of yourself while feedback is given. After the workshop your video will be uploaded for your future reference.

Schedule and registration details for the next session will be available soon.

Must be a Nordic Racer Member to participate.

The Nordic Racer coaches run the greatest number of Para-Nordic programs for skiers at all levels, and have trained more Paralympians than any other club in Canada.
