FXC Comp and Prep Programs

The FXC Comp and Prep programs provide year-round training opportunities for middle school and high school skiers with goals that range from racing their first Besh Cups, to making the varsity team of their school, to success on a world stage.

FXC Comp

FXC Comp is a full-service nordic ski training and racing program for high school athletes.  We offer multiple weekly training sessions, plus individual follow-up for goal meetings, training reviews, personalized strength training programs, assistance with ski selection, and race support.  The Comp program is designed to work in conjunction with high school training and racing.

FXC Prep

The FXC Prep program is designed for middle school skiers who are excited about training and racing, and want to continue to build their skills in a team environment.  Prep is the next progression beyond Devo+, before Comp.  This program includes multiple weekly training sessions and race support. This program has a strong emphasis on developing the fundamentals, teamwork, having fun, and learning more about the process of ski training and racing.

To address the current challenges, FXC

  • We will only host outdoor classes and limited indoor classes for older athletes.
  • Offer hand sanitizer anywhere the touching shared surfaces occurs.
  • We require masks to be worn when closer than 6 feet to others.
