About Me
I have been coaching runners and skiers for over 25 years. I launched WWW.SKIWALKING.COM and the American Nordic Walking System in 2003. Our quality one-piece walking poles are safer, lighter and much more durable than cheap twist-locking adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles. My SMART car needs to haul my 206cm Salomon cross country skis, my son's skis and both of us during ski season. My SMART car also has to haul multiple pole bags stuff with my Nordic Ski Walking Poles as I tour the country hosting Nordic Ski Walking Lessons and Clinics.

"NORDIC" SMART Car - Ideal For Skiers and Nordic Ski Walkers

I slapped some snow tires on my new SMART Car and winter driving has been a blast! We have been cross country skiing everyday since Nov. 17th this winter! Today we skied on the beach along Sleeping Bear Bay in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. When I'm not coaching skiers or out skiing with my family, I'm hauling Nordic Ski Walking poles to Nordic Walking clinics and lessons. My SMART Car has enough room for 60 pairs of Nordic Walking Poles.

I haven't decided yet wether I should decal and decorate (wrap) with Nordic Walking Pictures, my WWW.SKIWALKING.COM website and/or my email: The car looks great just as it is and it turns a lot of heads.

My SMART Car is nothing but FUN!

The 2008-2009 ski season was the best ever and our SMART Car did great getting us to and from the trail head! Snow tires were probably a good idea and the esp® (electronic stability) is an awesome feature that keeps the SMART Car going in the right direction. We started xc skiing on Nov. 17th and had skiable snow in Leelanau County until April 24th.

Last Friday my son and I skied Friday after school and it was 70 degrees. When my… Continue

My 206 cm Salomon classic Nordic (cross country) skis and Swix Nordic (cross country) poles fit just great in my Smart Car. There is even room for my 12-year-old son and his Nordic ski gear. I can also fit 60 pairs of Nordic Walking Poles in my new SMART car as I travel around hosting Nordic Walking Clinics.

We have had great snow for Nordic Skiing - cross country skiing here in northern Michigan. We have been cross country skiing… Continue
