Cross-Country Ski Lessons
“It’s just like going for a walk, but on skis.” This is what local kids are told when they first clip into cross-country skis and the same is true for first-time skiers of any age. To make the most of your time on what we affectionally call “skinny skis”, sign up for a lesson with a qualified instructor. They’ll help you understand the magic of the movements of skiing, and in no time you’ll be gliding along the well-groomed trails.

When to go
Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch out your arms and legs so you can make the most of each stride.
Local rental shops in Banff and Lake Louise will ensure you’re properly fitted for skis, boots and poles.
Your instructor will likely suggest a good stretching session when you get home, and we agree!
