Nordic Programs

For more information and to make reservations for any of our programs, lessons and clinics, please contact Mt. Bachelor Reservations at 800-829-2442.

Lessons are available every day at the Nordic Center! One-hour Cross Country lessons start from the lodge five times daily between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  Choose a group lesson, or reserve a private lesson for one-on-one instruction.  Sessions longer than one hour include our multi-week performance clinics in skate and classic techniques, offered throughout the season.

Cross Country Skiing is divided into two techniques or styles:  Classic (a.k.a. Diagonal Stride) where the skier glides straight-ahead in parallel tracks and Skate (a.k.a. Freestyle) which involves a motion similar to ice-skating or roller-blading.  Telemark is taught from Mt. Bachelor's Alpine side.

Whether you prefer Classic or Skate, our talented Nordic Instructors teach all you need to know in a beautiful fresh air "classroom"! 

Our Instructors have extensive backgrounds in Cross Country Skiing: from coaching to racing to decades spent instructing skiers in good technique.  All provide a friendly, positive environment for learning and all are passionate about improving your skiing no matter what level you start at.  Whether your goals are to just get used to those weird "sticks" strapped to your feet, or to blow by your peers in the PPP, our skilled Instructors will get you there!
