Why sign up for Nordic Ski Instruction? Is it for me?

  • Learning correct technique and gaining a better understanding of the fundamentals will greatly increase your enjoyment of the sport. A good foundation and basic skills will allow you to feel confident in your ability to ski most anywhere.
  • It is easy to develop some bad habits and inefficient technique. An instructor can set you on the right path and have you coming back for more. You’ll learn to expend less energy and enjoy the effortless feeling of Nordic skiing (well, maybe it will take more than one lesson…) Learning good technique from the beginning means not having to spend tie unlearning ingrained bad habits and poor teechnique.
