Nordic Lessons

During the core part of the winter season, lessons are available every day at the Nordic Center!  Cross Country lessons, 90-minutes in length, start from the lodge four times daily between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  Choose a group lesson or reserve a private lesson for one-on-one instruction. Several multi-week performance clinics in skate and classic techniques are also 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. Telemark skiing technique 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 and have spent decades instructing skiers in good technique. All provide a friendly, positive environment for learning and all are passionate about improving your skiing regardless of your ability level. Whether your goals are to blow by your peers in the PPP or simply explore new winter fitness opportunities, our skilled Instructors will get you there.
