Nordic SUMMER COLLEGIATE TRAINING

About the PROGRAM

June 1 - August 3, 2020
Spend 9 weeks in Bozeman, Montana, in a professional group training environment. The BSF/Nordic Team Solutions Nordic Team Collegiate gives you structured weekly training with your peers, one-on-one coaching with Andy Newell, and a way to enhance your training while still being connected to your current club/school.

Bozeman offers ideal off-season training with spring-snow skiing at high elevations, quality roller skiing, running, biking, alpine mountain terrain and opportunities for part-time summer jobs. While part-time jobs are feasible, athletes should be committed to full-time training during the 9-week period.

Led by Andy Newell, head of the newly formed Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF) Elite Team, you'll train alongside other Collegiate Team members from across the country, as well as the BSF Elite Team.
