Whether you have never skied cross-country, or could use some fine-tuning, a lesson can make all the difference.  Our Nordic Center has a team of friendly, experienced cross country ski instructors that will introduce you to the sport or take your skiing to the next level!

Group Lessons
We offer group lessons every day at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., and 1:30 p.m.

If you would like private instruction, we offer private lessons by appointment.

Walk-ins are welcome if there is an instructor available at that time.  Your best bet is to make a reservation.  Call the Nordic Center at (970) 349-1707 at least 24 hours in advance to reserve a lesson.
