About the event

XC skiing is fun and a great workout in the snow! It's as easy as walking and much more efficient than snowshoeing.

Let us make it easy for you to get started in this outdoor activity! 

We provide access to transport, gear rental, trail choice and instruction! All in one spot. There is no cheaper or simpler way to get into the snow!

This intro class will be on flat terrain, with the opportunity to progress at your open pace once you get the basics.
