May 26th at Hyland Area (by Jan’s Place building in back), meet at 6:15pm. Rollerskiing starts at 6:30pm-8:00pm with Coach Rich Heilman and Gear West Pro  Matt Liebsch.  Open to ALL Lakeville Nordic Skiers and their friends/family- anyone  interested in learning to rollerski and train properly with them. Bring you ski boots, ski poles, a bike helmet and ideally some thin, snug fitting gloves (like biking gloves). 


Here is the Basic Summer Camp Information  for Loppet Nordic (LNR)

Here is the information on the “go for it”   Loppet Overnight Camps for U14 and U16  skiers. There are 3 sessions-  2 in the Summer and 1 in the fall.


Option 1: To Rollerski, IDEALLY( better for both skate and classic skiing)  get 1 pair of Skate rollerskis and 1 pair of Classic rollerskis. Be sure to have the same type of bindings that fit your ski boots mounted on them!  The minimal need would be a “Combi” Rollerski.   Gear West carries  the Swenor Brand for Rental and/or for sale (buy out at end of summer or do a pay as you go and own- 150.00 down per pair). Go HERE for info on this option.

Option 2:  Rent from the Booster Club. $50.00 for summer per pair.  If you are doing the Summer LNR ski program (at Hyland) you will need Both Skate and Classic rollerskis.    Renting will be from June 7-Aug 15.  You must turn in the roller skis after August 15th or re-up you rental for fall rental.   (Aug 15- Nov. 1)  again, $50.00 per pair. Rental cost from boosters goes to replacing wheels and repairs, which is 35.00 team price per wheel when replacing after wear.


15.00 per pair at team price ( I purchased them in bulk for everyone who needs them) bring 15.00 cash or check to Lakeville Nordic Boosters if you want them and I will attach them for you the first time and give you a free “how to”  attach and remove rollerski ferrules  lesson.

OR watch this free video!   Rollerski Ferrules  Needed for all blacktop and concrete surfaces. Easily switch with snow tips/baskets using heat and some pressure.  “How to” video from Ari at Gear West on You Tube.



We will meet as  a “TEAM” 4 times(Once in  June, twice in July and once in August) over the summer to have fun  and stay connected!  Get-togethers always involve skiers and their families, friends, food activities and some type of aerobic exercise .  Our get-togethers are at places like

Antler’s Park

Cleary Lake Park

Hyland Park

Video Show from Banquet

From Holden Hanson:  “The YouTube upload ran into a snag   …… the Taylor Swift song  caused the whole video to have no sound.  It seems that in late November she became an anti free streaming activist and pulled all her music from Spotify. Any video posted after then that has one of her songs is muted, so the pictures show but no sound on the whole thing.  So, I will go back into the video and change out that song with an non TS song and see if it will post with sound.  In the mean time—-for those with a spare GB of storage in their memory, I have put the show in a public Dropbox with the Taylor song at this link” (Thank you Holden!)
