The goal of Finn Sisu's Vakava Masters year-round program is to help each individual become a more efficient, stronger, and faster skier. Week after week, our coaches will provide consistent, personalized attention that will help you improve the skills you need to become a better Nordic skier. Rollerski and dryland sessions will focus on both skate and classic techniques. Athletes will learn the importance of technique, endurance, strength, agility and speed. Some sessions will also include video analysis and fitness testing. Finn Sisu's Vakava Masters is open to all ages and skill levels of adult skiers who are looking to improve their skiing.
Our coaching staff, Kate Ellis, Greg Weier, and Ahvo Taipale, has decades of experience coaching at all levels and will help you get the most out of your sessions.
