You've been cross-country skiing for some time, but there are still some things to workout on the basics skills. During the lesson you will learn a light and smoother skiing technique as well as the active use of equipment.  We’ll practice one-kick equal thrust and a good climbing and downhill technique, giving you also tips for safety descends. The terrain is easy to keep practicing nice and comfortable while your skiing gets relaxed.

You've been cross-country skiing a lot already.  And you might have been looking at other skiers how relaxed, lightweight and effective they look.  You might have got an idea that maybe you also could ski sometimes like them. Yes you can! We will train weight transfer and push. You will find a proper grip on your kick and relax slide for the support leg. The goals are active overall performance and relax skiing style, and you will be able to use different techniques depending on terrain variation. Variable terrain brings new feeling to your cross-country skiing.
