Are you a graduate of the Introduction to Skate (XC) skiing class and want to learn more? Or are you an experienced skate skier interested in perfecting your technique? Then sign up for the intermediate skating course. Master the different skating techniques and how to apply them with grace and style on different terrain conditions.
The class consists of three skating lessons taught by PSIA instructors on groomed trails and will refine basics: balance, timing/rhythm and power, while honing the various skate techniques.
