XCBC Masters Program

XCBC Masters Program is built around the principle of having fun while building fitness. This program is for committed athletes who want the fitness to confidently line up on the start line of events like the Lake Louise Loppet or Cookie Race without the pressure of building their season around racing. Participants must be proficient classic and skate skiers with a base fitness to ski comfortably for 90+ minutes. That being said, the program focus is to improve technique and cardiovascular fitness while being tailored to your individual needs.

What Member’s Say

When you really think about it, this is almost the “ideal” program in so many ways. It is local and convenient. It is a “no stress” introduction to a sport that promotes fitness and health for life. It offers competitive opportunities to those who so desire. Finally it happens in a beautiful outdoor environment. I believe there are many sports clubs who seek to fulfill one of these goals, but very few who attempt to fulfill all of them. We are so fortunate to have XCBC in our backyard!

Let me say something. You have an amazing team with awesome support. They really helped me this weekend. This is what I call an “extra mile” in customer relationship. So I give 8 stars for the program theme and if I could, I’d give 10 stars for support.
