Learn to cross country ski and go free-range. No crowds, no lifts, no passes. Cross country is your key to exploring this winter wonderland at your own pace, powered by you.

Cross country skis may look similar to other skis, but the mechanics are quite different. Although you’re still sliding on snow, it takes some understanding and practice to stay upright and get around efficiently.

Practice the basics of weight transfer and efficient glide to get you started exploring the trails. Levels from ‘absolute beginner’ up, classic and skate techniques.
