2022 Learn to Skate Ski Clinic
Sunday, Jan 30th – 11:00am: Learn to Skate Ski Clinic at the XC Ski Headquarters.
Do you like to go fast? Skate skiing is one of the fastest of the Nordic styles of skiing! The way you move is more like ice skating but with more coordination, power, and endurance than traditional skiing. While skate skiing can take longer to master, once you get the hang of it, skate skiing is a fun style that you’ll enjoy.
Skate skiing started in the 1930s out of necessity. During this time, people found that skating movements allowed them to travel across flat terrain more quickly. This significantly cut their travel time when no hills were around. It wasn’t long till the style made its way into the ski marathon circuit.
Have you been thinking about trying skate skiing, but aren’t sure how to get into it? Join us for our Learn How to Skate Ski Clinic, which includes a 2 hour skate ski rental, Facilities Pass, and 90 minute group skate ski lesson. Cost for the clinic is $20. Ski rentals are available at our normal rates. The lesson starts at 11:00am, and skiers are welcome to pick up rental equipment as early as 10:30am. Space is limited, so pre-registration is required – visit www.crosscountryski.com or
