 Transform your skiing and your enjoyment

Cross country skiing has fundamental elements of technique. When you get these right, it will transform your skiing and enjoyment of the sport.

A coaching session with us will give you clear points to work on and a development plan. You can choose to include video feedback for added clarity and development.

Skiing well feels good!

As an athletic skier good technique enables you to ski faster and tackle greater challenges. Skiing well feels really good! It also has excellent cross training benefits for other sports and fitness activities.

You may even be inspired to take on one of the classic races such as Norway’s Birkebeiner.

Being a more efficient skier, through good technique, opens up a world of longer tours. You ski easily and with less effort.

We can help you to improve in whichever style of cross-country skiing you choose: classic, skate or off track.
