Our Program

Kachemak Women’s Nordic (KWN) is a program of the Kachemak Nordic Ski Club founded in 2007. Over the years the program has grown and adapted to meet the changing needs in the ski community together with the interests of program members. Currently KWN is operated by an enthusiastic team of coaches, each who brings different ski and fitness experience to our program. These volunteer coaches work together to design a comprehensive ski training program and schedule. 

Historically KWN was an exclusively ‘for women, by women’ program. Beginning in 2017, the program was expanded to offer a 5-week mixed-gender session.  New for 2019-20, Kachemak Women’s Nordic now welcomes both men and women to participate for the entire season. For now, the name will remain Kachemak Women’s Nordic as we fully explore a co-ed program this year.  We are excited to grow participation to provide masters-level ski fitness training to a broader sector of the community. We hope you share this enthusiasm!

Philosophy

Our primary commitment is to building a community of athletes of all levels. No matter your ski ability, fitness, or age, the workouts are designed for every individual to improve their ski technique and strength. As part of the KWN philosophy, we aim to share the experience of learning, challenging ourselves, and supporting each other’s athletic goals. KWN strives to be a fun, supportive environment for adults of all abilities to inspire each other and to build camaraderie through a shared joy of skiing and fitness.

Some skiers use this program to prepare for serious ski racing and others will never race and instead simply enjoy the company, mid-day sunshine and increased fitness! Some people are able to come to practice every time it meets, and some people come to practice twice a month.

We communicate through email and also through posts on our  private Facebook group. Please request to join our  Facebook group and join the fun!

Cost:
