About this week
Using Obertilliach as the base for this week, will be able to have a snow sure week's skiing and instruction leading up to the Gsiesertal marathon weekend. A new week for Totally Nordic and a new race weekend.
We will arrange transport to the marathon for those who wish, and for those who wish to stay in Obertilliach we will arrange for the local ski instructor to teach for the Saturday and Sunday.
This week is open to all levels of skier, and is a good week for those who would like to take part in a marathon race for the first time, with the option for a short race in both classic and skating.
The week will start with the fundamentals of classic and skating. Each day the lessons will be broken down into small and simple steps which produce a greater level of progress in classic and skating. The program for the week will be structured to each person's needs, and what they would like to improve on.
Each day there will be two training / instruction blocks, classic and skate
We tend to work on two days of classic or skating, then switch to which ever you wish to work on for the remainder of the week.
In the evenings we have waxing talks, ski selection information and videos on training methods.
Skiers are not expected to attend all sessions, and are free to explore the trails.
With Obertilliach so well situated, we can ski from the village each day, and make regular trips to the biathlon and cross country ski centre which is only a short 1km run away.
Obertilliach has a very good snow record and has invested heavily this year in increasing snow making on the trails.
The local ski hire is able to offer top end 2017 / 2018 race equipment for hire, and a great range of boots and skis for sale.
