Technique Lesson with an Olympian!
Want to take your skiing to the next level? Now’s your chance to improve your technique, ask questions about the nitty gritty of skating, and have more fun on skis this winter. A 60-minute small group lesson, intermediate/advanced skate, with Sophie Caldwell Hamilton.
Time & Location
Feb 12, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Spring Gulch, Co Rd 108, Carbondale, CO 81623, USA
About the Event
Date/Time: Sunday February 12th from 10-11 a.m.
Ability Level: Intermediate/advanced. While you certainly do not need to be a “pro” to take a lesson with one, for the benefit of the small instructional group, we ask that skiers have a basic proficiency with the technique. Skiers should know the basic movements and vocabulary (V1, V2, etc.) and be comfortable ascending and descending the terrain at Spring Gulch.
Sophie Hamilton is a retired professional cross country skier who is finding her new home in the Roaring Fork Valley with husband Simi Hamilton. Both have contributed their expertise to the AVSC Nordic program.
Sophie hails from the Peru, Vermont where she was raised in a family whose last name, Caldwell, is synonymous with cross-country skiing in the Northeast. Growing up immersed in the sport, skiing brought her to the U.S. Ski Team in 2015 by way of Dartmouth College, where she was a five-time All American. She competed in the 2014 and 2018 Olympic Games in Sochi and Pyongchang, and earned 10 World Cup sprint podiums during her international racing career. Sophie earned two World Cup sprint wins - one in skate and one in classic - and was the third ranked sprinter in the world in 2018, followed by a fourth place standing in 2019. After welcoming her first child, Lilly, this fall, Sophie is balancing new motherhood with her work at Backbone Media.
