First you must plant a seed………


5 years ago a little project started Out There called ~ TEAM OUT THERE.

At first it was Nordic skiers & Biathletes. It has since grown to many athletes from many countries. It has gone to Jumpers, BMX riders (who is a pretty amazing skier) and who knows where next. So if you are involved with a company or organization in the Nordic Community, Nutrition, clothing, gear etc and have interest in partnering with The Team or One of our athletes let us know

Email Growing the Team

If you never PLANT a seed, you can never expect to have a Harvest. We are here to help you plant, remember that.



Roller Skiing- The Joy of Summer


We are fortunate to live in a country that has an amazing road system. Yes not all of these roads are Roller Ski ready but as you travel into Rural America the options are endless. We are super fortunate here in Northern Wisconsin to have loads of nice pavement with little traffic. This past weekend we found a NEW road to us just 15 min from our house. Nice rolling roads, one section with a 1 mile climb going up around 250 ft. A two hour Over Distance Double Pole workout 28km, 3 cars and 1 Tractor. Really it’s like going to the ski trail on a Sunday during football season, you have it all to yourself.

So the QUESTION I have always asked after roller skiing for over 20yrs is

“Why do more people not roller ski?”

I think the answer is quite simple. There are lots of roller skis hanging in garage’s, shed’s & other places not being used. Well why is that? Patience, that is why. Over the years we have coached many folks to the LOVE of roller skiing, and seen 10 times that buy roller skis, get hurt and never roller ski again. We always try to get folks to understand that it is amazing, but you need to take the time EVERY season to start with the basics, balance, timing, etc in Late April & May and when June arrives start to get in more specific & longer workouts. Shops, Coaches, Clubs around the country offer ways to learn to roller ski properly. If YOU want to become better at something you need to take the time to develop the skill, practice & perfect.

Outside is Free… Or is it?


So as of recent I have seen many folks utilizing the hashtag #OutsideisFree. At first I thought well that is clever, as there is no valid gym membership, no open hours etc. Although as it has started to crop up more and more I began to think, Outside is not Free. As this pondered in my mind I ran into someone out on the single track one day, a conversation started about the trails and nature and how they felt the best part of it was it was “FREE”. So being the stubborn Norwegian I am I asked them “So all of the volunteer hours, the donations from business, the county, tourism, etc. they have no value?” The stunned look explained it all. The conversation continued and I recognized a different appreciation for the Outside instantly.

I’m not going to rant about weather Outside is Free or not, I just want to ask you before you devalue the Natural World that as people we get to enjoy, that do not take for granted the Public lands, Parks etc that often partner with Trail Associations and others to create Ski Trails, Hiking Trails, Single Track, Alpine Areas and more that it has a Value and it is PRICELESS! You still may not have a Fee to use it but it did come at a cost.

Get Out There and support keeping Public Lands PUBLIC for everyone to use and enjoy

Support YOUR local Trail Group or Association through a monetary donation or donation of your time on a work day.

Remember to #BeOutThere as #OutsideisPriceless

Ski from trees raise monies

This past weekend a longtime Nordic coach and friend gave us a wonderful pair of Madshus Birkebeiners 215cm with  lignostone edges as well. They need some love. So we will be restoring them fully along with new tar & wax**. We will then offer them up on Auction. From May 8th – 12th at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Madshus-Birkebeiners-215cm-/192174731559?roken=cUgayN

Proceeds will then be donated to the Club in which this coach works with in the UP of Michigan.

** The skis have 3 pin bindings currently. Post Auction we will contact the winner to see if they want different bindings. (additional fees may apply)

Get Ready to Roll!


It is time to think about Roller Ski Season. Yes the weather is warming up but it is always best to wait until the roads are clean, get that rest time in from the long season and get ready to ROLL in later May. Each year we have rollerski equipment arrive in the beginning of MAY just in time for the season.

We also offer TEAM pricing for athletes competing in Middle School & High School racing along with JNQ racing. Looking for those prices email us TEAM ROLLERSKI PRICING
