APUNSC Masters Program Description
The APU Master Program is a community based cross-country ski program that offers group-training sessions. The goal of the program is to develop cross-country ski skills, improve fitness, and promote skiing in the community.
Evening Masters is a coed ski-training group. The Evening group meets three days a week from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Winter training includes strength (Monday), intervals (Wednesday), and distance (Thursday). Ski sessions are both classic and skate. Summer training includes strength (Monday), interval (Wednesday), and roller ski (Thursday). Interval sessions are typically running and ski walking with poles.
The APU Ski Center hosts’ annual events including ski camps, wax clinics, community races, spring crust skis, and club ski selection-fitting night.
