WELCOME TO OUR MASTERS PERFORMANCE GROUP (PG) PROGRAM FOR THE 2022-23 SEASON!
The Master’s Performance Group comes with a focus on technical development and improving overall fitness through ski-specific training. This program is designed for athletes training in multiple sports, who want to improve their technique, increase speed and confidence on varying terrain as well as have a strong training group to ski with. This cohort sees a lot of athletes from other sports who want to maintain their fitness throughout their off-season and switch up their training systems.
Sovereign Masters promotes the joy of skiing, building friendships, and adding to one’s skiing skills in a fun social group setting while working hard.
Coached by Masters Lead Coach, Jessica Roach. This program aims to provide a space for quality learning and skill development. This program is not for beginners, you should be comfortable skiing most trails at Sovereign Lake. Training sessions will lead to many different areas of the trail network.
The Master’s Performance Group program runs 1x per week in the fall (Sept-Oct) and 2x/week times per week in the winter (Nov-March). Plus social ski sessions in the winter. All participants must also have a 2022-23 Season Pass in order to have access to SLNC Programming. See the schedule section for more details.
Is this sounding like it is a bit outside of your abilities? We offer a Masters XC Program as well as Intro to Skiing Packages for new skiers through our Day Lodge.
If you are looking for a program that’s more race focused and training intense, check out our Masters Race Team program.
Cost: 2022/23 $500 per person, plus a season pass registration fee (Sept-March*).
*For the remainder of the summer at no additional cost there will be a 1x week PG session and if that day doesn’t work for you are invited to join a Race Team training time during the summer only. This is an opportunity to also see if the Race Team might be a good fit for you.
Race support is available for a fee at events that SLNC is supporting.
Program Limit: 30 participants, please fill out the self-questionnaire/athlete profile besides learning a bit about yourself, this will help you and the coach find the right program fit for you. If you are unsure if this or the Master Race Team is the right fit you can try the PG for the summer and change to the race team by Aug 31st in consultation with the Master’s coach.

Jessica Roach – Masters Lead Coach
While training in Ontario, the Master’s race team trained and raced alongside the younger athletes. With this unique experience and coaching the Master’s Team at Nickel Plate, it was clear that she loved working with Masters athletes. When the opportunity at SLNC was presented, she jumped at the chance!
“SLNC is a spectacular facility and community, not to mention the amazing area”. Jessica loves all the biking and skiing that is so close by and cannot wait for the snow to start falling.
Head Coach: Jacqueline Akerman
