Skiers are made in the summer.

Athletes from all sports know that gains and improvements are made in the off-season. Momentum Northwest offers a rich schedule of summer training, open to athletes from all sports. All athletes benefit from the agility and endurance that cross-country ski training provides. Momentum offers long adventurous days in the mountains balanced with speed and technique work closer to the city, providing developing athletes with the hours and experience that build the fitness base for an entire year of sport.

Blocks and Pricing

Participation in our Spring/Summer programming is on a Block by Block basis. We use blocks to allow flexibility for our busy families, while providing consistent training opportunities to our athletes. Each Block finishes with a camp and includes at least one off-the-beaten-path adventure. Tuesdays and Thursdays for prospective Comps during Block 1 are optional, though necessary, at a rate of $35/day.

There are four available blocks. Because of when camps take place, Block lengths differ as do their fees.

PLEASE NOTE: These Blocks follow a long term training plan so that you can be prepared for the Winter. This means that each Block builds on the previous Block, making each Block progressively more difficult than the last. If you miss a block, do not anticipate your body to be able to keep up with your expectations.

What is roller skiing?

Roller skiing is a simulated form of cross-country skiing which utilizes short wheeled
shafts and poles, allowing you to "ski" in either classic or skate technique, on pavement.
It's not a direct replica of skiing but it serves a crucial purpose in keeping athletes connected with the feel and movements of ski technique outside of the winter.
Momentum skiiers rollerski in the Fall as their primary training until the snow arrives.

Roller skiing is a great fitness tool, whether you're a seasoned ski racer or a newcomer.
It is a low-impact and full-body workout, and provides good coordination training which
can translate to a number of different sports. Ultimately, it is one piece of a larger
training puzzle which can help develop strong skiers and other athletes in their off-
season preparations.

We have a fleet of roller skis available for new participants to utilize, so there is no
immediate need to purchase this equipment on your own. However, experienced
athletes will be expected to provide their own roller skis. All athletes will need to provide
their own boots, poles, and helmet, but we'll be there to help you in sourcing these
elements.
