The Culture of Nordic

What hampers the Growth of the Sports we love in our Country?

Culture!

Having Nordic be apart of my everyday life for over 40 years has given me the opportunity while here in the US, In Norway & other places to see it from many sides. When we look at Nordic Skiing as a Sport or by the way of a lifestyle the Norwegians have it knocked. No this is not a political rant, but in a country where you have a Socialized Democracy folks are often looking to the Overall and not the few. Occasionally our Rugged Independence may get the better of us as far as how to Growing Nordic.

We need to remember that we are are fortunate to be able to Dream, set goals and work towards them. Along the way there can be changes in the direction of those goals & dreams but that does not me the values at the core of those thoughts is not a worth one. Creating a Lifestyle based around the things we love will foster the sport to grow. Yes over time Coaches will work with promising young athletes who may decide to take a different sport or academic path. Does this mean they have failed as a coach? Hell no, it means they gave opportunity to that young person and helped them on their journey. Does it mean the athlete failed? MOST Certainly NOT! It meant that they were given the chance to see if skiing or hockey or running or band or math was what they are truly passionate about.

Remember that Culture is about it’s PEOPLE!

Make sure you represent it well!

Custom… It’s what we do!

So this is a slogan we have used in our other business Burnell’s Decor for over four decades. “Custom… It’s what we do!” For now over a decade (crazy to think it has gone that fast) It is something we do in the Nordic World as well. Be it from Customizing the Skis, Boots & Poles to best fit your needs as well as gear, training camps, etc. If there is something you as an individual skier, a Jr Team or beyond need to fill a niche you have… Then we are Out There to help make that happen.

Tom Kelly is one of America’s noted Olympic storytellers whose “Behind the Gold” speaking series has brought stories to audiences around the world. A Madison native, Kelly was an award-winning news photographer before moving to northwestern Wisconsin in the mid-1970s to do public relations for the then-fledgling Birkie and the prosperous Telemark Lodge. He left Telemark in 1984, beginning a career with the U.S. Ski Association in 1988, forging a 32-year career as spokesperson for America’s Olympic skiers and snowboarders.

We are excited to have great NEWS regarding some Great rollerski options for the 2019/20 Season. Last Season we started handling the Rundle Brand out of Canada. We had fantastic feedback on these skis. In their skate line up both the FLEX and Velox had amazing performance,speed and durability for their price points. This season the Velox has been upgraded on a number of fronts to the RUSH. We are excited to see what our friends North of the border have come up with. The NEW Kids on the block in the US market is IDT of Norway. The ski of Klaebo & the rest of the Norwegian National Team.
