Coaches and athletes were fortunate to ski on-snow at our recent November CXC Junior Camp in Ironwood (MI).

Athletes arrived to marginal conditions which quickly made a turn for the better, allowing the group to ski a total of 11 times over the six-day camp. With evening presentations regarding race preparation and a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner this camp proved a well-rounded gathering among Midwest junior skiers and the CXC coaches!

When preparing your calendar for next year, be sure to keep in mind that CXC Open Camps are held once a month beginning in June and ending in December. Each camp has a separate focus including volume, strength, technique, fitness testing, intensity, and race preparation.
