XC Ski Nation, launched in 2016, is an online membership site for cross-country skiers who want in-depth, up-to-date information about Nordic ski technique as practiced by the top skiers in the world.

CCC and XC Ski Nation will co-produce new skiing technique and drill videos for the joint benefit of XC Ski Nation members and NCCP coaches. The new videos will be available to XC Ski Nation members within the larger XCSN Course Library. NCCP coaches registered with CCC will also have access to these videos within CCC’s popular Athlete Matrix.

The XC Ski Nation website includes:

  • An ever-expanding course library that includes Explainer Courses, Ski Lessons and Drills;
  • A full Technique Demo Library with every skate and classic technique demonstrated by Canadian World Cup skiers;
  • Communal Technique Analysis, where members can submit video for feedback on their skiing technique. Analyzed videos are shared within the membership so everyone can learn from one another;
  • A Community Forum, where you can get ongoing support, answers to your questions as they arise and interact with the international membership.

Look for new videos in the coming months!
