The River Valley Free School is learning how to cross country ski with Jana!

This is a beginner cross country ski class, so previous experience is not necessary. Bring your own equipment or rent from Totem Outfitters (7430 99st) for $20/day (which includes skiis, poles, and boots).

What to wear: Wear your warm base layers - long undies, warm moveable pants and snow pants, warm jacket extra sweater, warm gloves, hat, and scarf. It is also recommended to bring two pairs of socks: one medium thickness and one thick warm pair, just in case!

What will you learn?

  • How to fall down. Yup! That’s the first step!
  • How to get up
  • The funky walk to get grip on the snow
  • Basic understanding of skis and how they work (waxed and wax less)
  • Practicing long glides and balance
  • How to herringbone up a hill
  • How to snowplow down a hill
  • Downhill tuck for balance and speed
  • Double poling and kick double pole
  • And we will play a game at the end to use and practice all your new skills!

What you will take away from this workshop?

You will learn the basic foundations of cross country skiing and build confidence to go out, practice on your own, and begin your own cross country skiing journey!


Need a ride? Post on the facebook event and we will try to help coordinate some carpooling.


See you on the Tracks!
