Elite-Level Cross-country ski training
for 18+ year olds
Loppet Nordic Racing has long been associated with high-caliber racing in the cross-country ski world for juniors. With elite-level training now available to skiers post high school, the Midwest is set to become one of the best training areas for the nation’s top athletes.
LNR Collegiate Team
The LNR Collegiate Team is a summer training group for top NCAA cross-country skiers, meant to complement collegiate training programs during students’ time off from school.
Due to the extremely physically demanding nature of these programs, they are not open to the public. Participants in these elite-level training groups are offered invitation based on superior results in popular ski races during previous season. Contact Caitlin Gregg at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to apply to train with one of these teams.
