WHAT OUR SKIERS SAY:

The same thing that has always been great about Spacedogs - the people. Yes, the training is top notch, but you get more out of it because you truly enjoy the people who are doing the training along with you. You are just more likely to come out to train and to push yourself if you believe in a supporting community around you.

 

Excellent and attentive coaching. Organized and well communicated weekly workouts.

Nice variety of workouts. Great community.
