On Snow Games Video Tutorials

We are thrilled to announce that in collaboration with XC Ski Nation, Nordiq Canada created a video library of 33 on-snow game tutorials to support the development of youth skiers!

The videos are on the XC Ski Nation Website, in French and in English, but unlike most of the other videos, these are completely open access.
