Skier taking private lesson at Whistler Olympic Park

Cross-Country Skiing Lessons

We offer private lessons for ages 5 and up and cater to all cross-country skier levels!

Choose between a lesson in classic (where you ski in set tracks) or skate (where you ski ‘free’/not in the tracks). If you aren't sure which technique is right for you, speak to our team.

Before your lesson, be sure to read our "Know Before You Go" for helpful information on what to wear and bring for a day of cross-country skiing. You can also determine your current skiing level by viewing our guide.

Cross-Country Ski Private Lesson

Book a private lesson to receive dedicated attention from one of our professional & experienced cross-country ski instructors in your choice of classic or skate. Book for just yourself, or share a lesson with family or friends (up to 6 people of the same ability).

Cross-country ski private lessons run 7 days a week in the morning & afternoon (subject to instructor availability). We highly recommend booking ahead of time online (possible until 3 pm the day prior).
