Struggling on rocky/steep terrain? This clinic is for you! To better attack technical terrain, we will introduce the following key skills: trackstands, ratcheting, roll down lunges and drops. These maneuvers will give you the confidence that you need in the trickiest of terrain. This clinic practices and teaches advanced skills and is suitable for riders who consider themselves intermedate/experienced.

Strider Glider Gear Return

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have asked all 2019-2020 Strider Gliders who rented skis, boots and poles last year to keep their gear until until Fall 2020. Thank you for being careful and responsible with your rental gear.

Tentatively, we are planning for last year’s Strider Glider gear to be returned to us over the course of 4 days: October 3, 4, 5 & 6, 2020. Please await further instructions from Tim, who will be emailing you details a few weeks before the gear return due dates. Please hold your questions until you receive Tim’s instructions. We will inform you of all safety protocols at that time.

If you already know you will be unable/unavailable to return your Strider Glider gear between the dates of October 3rd and 6th, please arrange for a family member or friend to return the gear for you. We will not be able to take return gear outside of this window.

Stay tuned. Thank you!
