Intro Ski Clinics - Classic & Skate

INTRO TO Classic Skiing

Every new skier should take this introductory lesson. In a small group with physical distancing (maximum 6 participants), learn about your equipment, how to glide, climb hills and stop. A great way to build your confidence and basic skills to explore the trails on your own!

Classic skiing is the traditional cross country skiing technique that involves skiing in groomed tracks. Everybody can pick up this technique quickly and enjoy the beauty of the trails (all trails at Whistler Olympic Park are groomed with tracks for classic skiing!).

Intro to Skate Skiing

In this introductory group lesson, participants (maximum 6 participants) learn the basics of skate skiing techniques on flat terrain, up-hill climbs and descents. A great way to build your confidence and basic skills to explore the trails on your own!

Skate skiing or “free technique” resembles the skating technique used on ice for hockey and speed skating. Skiers skate on a groomed surface without the tracks used for classic skiing. At Whistler Olympic Park, all trails are groomed for skate skiing.
