Week 29 easy building week. 

Its Snowinggg!!!!!!!! Yee Haaa what we have been training for is finally here. If the weather holds we will be snow skiing on Tuesday so get out your rock skis and make sure that they are in working order. It will be so good. Remember that rock skis are skis that are old, cheap and bright colours, skis that you would ski over rocks on. Do not bring out skis that are good in anyway as they will get destroyed which is sad because you will have to spend more money on new skis. If you do not have rock skis let me know. 

While the snow is thin bring your poles with roller ski tips as you will be going down to the pavement and need the sharp hard surface of the roller ski tip to get grip. 

If you only have skate rock skis then bring them and we will put classic wax and create a grip pocket. When the snow is really thin skate skiing is hard to do as you push away the snow right down to the pavement. 

Now that the snow is here we will slow down on intervals for a while so that we can get our snow ski legs underneath us. We will be doing long distance skis focussing on technique and legs only and arms only. Roller skiing is different from snow skiing so we need some time to adapt our technique to the snow and getting a nice flat ski and good kick in classic. 

While the snow is thin it is best to classic ski as you do not push done to the pavement we will start skate skiing when the snow is thick enough. 

Raffle Update 

Make sure that you are getting you tickets sold and returned to Fionna, you an return them to me or directly to Fionna Fahey.

Marc and Lise have stayed there and got us the prize so if you need more information they can give it to you. You can also go to the website:

It is in St. Jovite right along the petit train du nord.

It is time to get your cross Country Canada Racing license. 
This license is very important for cross country skiers, in categories juvenile and up for both Quebec and Ontario athletes, biathletes you do not need this. This license allows you to collect CPL points, this is how athletes are ranked in Canada and it is connected to the Federation International de Ski (FIS) point list which is the international point list. Once you have your license and you have points on the list you can see how you rank with athletes in Canada and internationally. It is interesting and mandatory for your development as an athlete.

You get points based on how you finish in races that are provincially (Quebec Cup or Ontario Cup), Nationally (Easterns, Nationals) or FIS sanctioned (Ripton, Craftsbury). 

More importantly if you have no points,  you will always start at the back of the pack as you are seeded in races depending on your CPL point ranking. CPL points is how different teams are selected (provincial teams, talent squad, junior national team, national team etc.)

For those that are doing only one Quebec cup race (Easterns) it would be fine to have a day license which is cheaper but it will mean that you do not collect points for next year.  

If it is your first time getting a CCC license then you will need to enter you last name into the search function as CCC wants to make sure that you do not already have a license. When it does not find you then it will prompt you to purchase a license. 

Follow this link to register online for your CCC race license and for those going to Craftsbury you will need to get a FIS license.

You will need the following information
Club Official: Maurice Samm (Head Coach)
Coach Name: Maurice Samm
My NCCP# is 1217212

These people still have get there CCC license, you need to have a license whether day license or annual license, annual license is best for the reasons stated above.
