First experience of Cross Country Skiing
For those trying Cross Country Skiing for the first time, we start by discovering the equipment and it’s function.
To get off on the right foot you will start with one ski only then alternate with the other. One of the first things to learn is to get back up without assistance, after a tumble.
-Transfer of weight from one side to the other
-Co-ordination arms / legs
After you feel sufficiently comfortable with the basics you can on progress into the green slope (easy) and learn the skills to enable you to enjoy endless Kilometres of Cross Country Skiing.
How many hours for a first lesson
We advise beginners to start with a half-day (morning / afternoon) or 2 hour lesson between midday-2pm.
