"If you are like most paddlers, you spend 99% of your time paddling forward. At an average pace of over 40 strokes each minute, you take 2,500 or more strokes every hour. Wow!”
If you want to enhance your stroke and get stronger, faster, smoother or more efficient then this is the course for you! Its also a great refresher course at the start of the season - some folks have taken this clinic more than once!
Please note that the course does not include personal clothing or gear, food, or travel – please see our Gear and Clothing tab.
Course Cancellation: It is rare that we cancel a session due to weather considerations however we will do so if, in our judgement, the conditions are dangerous or are likely to present a poor learning environment.
We will meet at the Rundle Forebay in Canmore at the gravel pullout directly across from the entrance to the Nordic Center. See Map.
Course start time: TBA. Please arrive about 15 minutes early, so that you are unloaded, changed, and ready to begin at the start time. Arriving late will cut into your instructional time, and that of others on the course.
Please note that there are no washrooms, or change facilities at the site. The nearest washrooms are across the road at the Nordic center.
We suggest that you bring high energy snacks and drink with you. On cool days we especially recommend bringing a thermos with a hot drink.
