Want to learn to skate ski? With the right equipment and proper coaching, you'll soon be flying down the trails on skate skis! The First Time Skate Package is for those with solid classic ski skills who want to expand their horizons. With ski equipment and technique that differs from classic skiing, you can easily move forward with our instructors gently guiding you through those first basic steps of skate skiing. 

If you're completely new to Nordic skiing, you must try classic skiing before moving on to skate skiing in order to get the basics of Nordic skiing down. You can take the classic lesson in the morning, and move on to the skate skiing lesson in the afternoon on the same day.

Please arrive at least one hour before your scheduled lesson starts in order to allow us time to properly fit your rental equipment.
