Am I A Master?

Being a part of the CB Nordic Masters Community doesn’t mean that you’ve “mastered” the sport of nordic skiing, it is is just a differentiation from our “youth” or school-aged skier programs. Our Masters Community programs are open to anyone and everyone that has aged out of our youth programs.
