Adult Recreational Ski Lessons

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)
Level 1: is for beginners in the sport or those who may have done a little skiing several years ago. This course will teach you the fundamentals of skiing and give you the skills to enjoy yourself on the easier trails.
Level 2: is for those who need to refresh their skills in order to ski more efficiently and confidently on moderate terrain, uphill, downhill and on the level. This level is for people who have skied before and have reasonable confidence on skis. This level focuses on maintaining speed and rhythm on varied terrain.
Level 3: is for those who want to refine their skills. This course will be given on the trails and will concentrate on diagnosis of problems and practice of improved technique. You will practice adapting your ski technique to different types of terrain. Participants should have the stamina to ski 10+ km.
