Wisconsin Made Snowshoes!

The World’s Premier Snowshoes
Lighter, faster, easier and more fun!

Snowshoeing is a simple sport and your buying decision should be just as simple. Snowshoes have one purpose- efficient travel over the snow. Since 1992 Northern Lites has been making the World’s Premier brand of snowshoes that allow your mind to focus on your surroundings, not what’s on your feet. At one-half the weight of other aluminum frame or plastic snowshoes, you just can’t imagine how easy snowshoeing can be, it’s a totally new sport when on Northern Lites.

A Great variety of models available on the web on in the shop!

GMVS Camp

This summer a wonderful opportunity presented itself for athletes from the Midwest. Green Mountain Valley School (GMVS) in Waitsfield Vermont hosted a Summer Camp from July 31st- Aug 4th. This camp is geared for Young Athletes in the U14-U23 categories. This past March at the NENSA U16 Championships in Maine GMVS Nordic Director Colin Rodgers extended and invitation to our Coach Kris to bring a small group of athletes from the Midwest to the camp. Planning began in earnest in late March.

Well this past week our Coach Kris headed off with two Midwest athletes to the camp. Traveling from Wisconsin by car east. With visits to Niagara Falls along the way and a scenic drive thru the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York they arrives in Vermont.  With a full week of events the athletes came from across the New England, the Midwest & even Norway. From Fantastic OD runs at Sugarbush Resort, OD Rollerskis, Rollerski Agility work, Strength & Conditioning and a Rollerski TT at the Ethan Allen Biathlon Range in Jericho Vermont. Yes a TT on a ROLLERSKI Track! Participating also in the TT event were athletes from Mansfield Nordic & Craftsbury.

Now everyone has arrived back in the Midwest and the enthusiasm of the upcoming season is HIGH. Plans are already underway for the Summer 2018 event. For 2018 there will be the similar MAX number from the Midwest of 6 athletes, so if you would like to snag one of those spots let us know. Email us at GMVS Camp 18

3 of 6 Spots already reserved for 2018 (8.14.17)

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.
