ADULT SKI PROGRAM

Adult Ski Program and Masters

Make the most of your ski season. We invite cross country skiers 19 years and older to join our enthusiastic group to learn to ski or improve technique and fitness in a social and friendly environment. This year in the Adult Ski Program we are offering three 4‑week sessions each with a variety of levels from Learn-to-Ski to Masters. Each class will be taught by one instructor with approximately 8 participants. There will be opportunities to participate in waxing clinics, video analysis, loppets, and après ski socials throughout the season.

Adult Ski Program


This season there will be three sets of sessions (Nov-Dec, Jan, and Feb). Each set will run for 4 weeks. This modular approach is designed to encourage participants to try classic and skate techniques, join groups that work around other commitments, and have an opportunity to learn with different instructors.

  • Evening classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (6:30 - 8:00 pm).

  • Daytime classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays (1:30 - 3:00 pm).

  • We will divide skiers by ability on the first session, but collect some information to help instructors plan for each set.

  • You can register for the first block and see if you like it and later register for other blocks (maybe at a higher level!), or register now for the entire season.

  • Group size: Min. of 4 and max. of 10, with an average of 6 participants.

  • Registration closes at 10:00 pm the day before each program starts.
