Powderhorn 2005

Our clinics are designed to help you ski faster.

See our March 2005 Nastar clinic at Snowbasin HERE

The Modern Ski Racing Team held a junior team race clinic at Powderhorn on December 22nd and 23rd 2005.

Gary & Liz Dranow, Warren Wilkinson and Jeff Sadis traveled to Grand Junction, Colorado where they met with Ken Scissors, the Powderhorn Racing Club and the parents of the junior athletes.

The racers, coaches and the MSR Team met on snow the first morning for track analysis and preliminary racecourse training.

Because the mountain had little snow, we set brushes instead of gates.

Racers ski the brush course on the first day.

The sun came up the next morning, and we worked.

We worked on race tactics, video analysis and the Modern Ski Racing Progression including Waist Steering

The difference in the way these racers ski after two days is obvious:

The clinic was very successful. We can't wait to see how this team performs this season.

Testimonial of Ken Scissors, posted on the Nastar website:
"I am the Director of Powderhorn Racing Club, where Gary, Liz, Warren, and Jeff recently put on a Jr race clinic. In a word, it was fantastic. One thing everyone needs to understand about MSR teaching: it's comprehensive and state of the art, it's not just a "shtick" about waist steering. The waist steering progression is based on stance, balance, athletic movement, etc., it's not isolated. With our younger kids, the instruction was appropriatly basic, but REALLY thorough and precise. The older kids got the same, with the waist steering progression added, but not hammered or "sold". More than anything, the MSR team brought a rare combination of passion, enthusiasm, wisdom, experience, creativity, and COMMON SENSE to our small program which energized and inspired all of us from the littlest J5 to the coaches and parents (I'm a parent and coach, in the pic, I'm on the end holding the pink Nordica's at chest height, my son's a hot J3, and TOUGH critic who loved every minute of the clinic). What these guys are doing for the race community is unprecedented and in my opinion, to be lauded. "
