Description:

If you've never cross-country skied or done a bit, but want some tips and feedback on your technique, this trip is for you! It will be a one day instructional event held in the Callaghan Valley at Whistler Olympic Park.

The format will depend on the number of people, instructors and how many people want to do skate vs. classic skiing. It will most likely consist of a morning technique session followed by an afternoon of free skiing.

If you just want to ski, you can sign up to get the group discount ticket price (15% off). The regular ticket price is $23.50. As the club doesn't have any cross-country equipment you will need to either borrow from friends, rent from the city or rent from Whistler Olympic Park.
