The Spokane Nordic Transition Team is an opportunity for junior skiers age 8 and above who have at least three seasons in Nordic Kids (or equivalent cross-country skiing experience) to transition into more technical, and optionally competitive skiing that can lead to the Racing Team.
Throughout the winter, the team will meet two to three days a week, primarily Saturdays and Sundays on Mt. Spokane, but also in town, if snow conditions permit. Transition Team prepares skiers for racing, but does not require skiers to race. Optional racing competitions include some weekend races on Mount Spokane, and at other Pacific Northwest locations that require additional travel costs to attend.
Invitation is open to skiers whose ability levels are already a bit beyond novice and up through junior experts. The Spokane Nordic Transition Team is looking for athletes who like to have fun on the snow while improving their skiing technique. For novice/beginning skiers Nordic Kids is the better option for this age group, with the knowledge that Transition Team will still be there for your skier next year.
