Adult Recreational Ski Lessons (Winter)
A ten week program open to men and women divided into two 5-week sessions. This program gives participants the skills to enjoy the great ski trails around the Canmore Nordic Centre and beyond. Participants may select two classic ski sessions, two skate ski sessions, or one classic ski and one skate ski session. All ski lessons are taught by Canmore Nordic Ski Club instructors who are trained & certified by the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI)
NOTE: Sessions will be based on demand; therefore, some choices may not be available. If a participant chooses to do two sessions in the same discipline, the program will not be a continuation but will be repetition (instructor may or may not be the same)
Groups will be split into three different levels.
Adult Training Program (Fall and Winter)
Formerly called Level 4. This is an expansion of the Adult Recreational Ski lessons. This program is open to adult men and women that focuses on technique development for the intermediate to advanced skier with a format that combines skill improvement with fitness and coaching.
FOCUS: Technique and fitness improvement
This program is designed for people who want to continue improving their ski technique in classic and/or skating with a secondary focus on fitness. Both classic and skate techniques will be taught. Participants should be proficient with skating and/or classic skiing. Instruction is highly individualized, so a skier may focus on one technique. Participants should be able to ski for 45 minutes continuously on varied terrain.
Adult Biathlon Recreational Program
FOCUS: Learn to shoot a 22 caliber rifle on biathlon targets and get fitness too!
