Cross Country Ski Lessons for Adults 2021- 2022

While cross country skiing appears simple, instruction can make skiing less effort and more fun, enabling you to go further and ski faster. A Regina Ski Club instructor can help get you started – or get much better – in one of the best winter sports in Regina! This season we are offering courses to adults in beginner classic and skate skiing as well as  intermediate skate and classic technique.

Ski lessons take place in Regina on machine groomed trails maintained by Regina Ski Club volunteers.  Classes (limited to 8 candidates) usually fill up well before start date, so register early to reserve your place. More courses may be added to the schedule as the season progresses, depending on instructor availability, weather, etc. Course fees do not include skiing equipment. If you need rentals please contact, Fresh Air Experience at 306- 522-6665

Covid -19 precautions will need to be followed to comply with current Sask Health requirements. Your instructor will advise the necessary protocols we will observe for the location of each course, along with your registration information.

For general inquiries on the instruction program/registration, please contact the Adult Instruction Coordinator, Brennan Craig, email: [email protected].   If a private or semi-private lesson suits your schedule better than a group lesson, please email Brennan Craig as well.
