About the KNC 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.

 

There are major changes to the format this year with three 4‑week sessions being offered and 4 levels from Learn-to-Ski to Masters. Each class will be taught by one instructor with class sizes limited to 8 participants. There will be opportunities to participate in waxing clinics, video analysis, loppets, and après ski socials throughout the season.

 

Registration is through Zone 4 only (HERE). There will also an option to complete your registration on Zone 4 at the trailhead kiosk after it opens for the season.

 

Dryland:

For those keen to get their ski legs under them there will be two 5-week sets of dryland training starting in September. Dryland will focus on strength, core and ski specific movement. Using the gym to develop strength, trails for ski striding and bounding, and lodge at KNC to provide a social avenue to connect with fellow participants. No experience necessary. Choose Tuesdays and Thursdays for maximum benefit. Sessions will run from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm to take advantage of Fall daylight.
