Hills, Hills, Hills: Mastering Hills on XC Skis

One-Day Class

A one-day intensive version of our multiweek Hills, Hills, Hills: Mastering Hills on XC Skis class for experienced XC skiers who want to improve their XC ski techinque on Hills but are unable to take our multi-week class. The class focuses on hills: how to get up them, how to ski down them, how to adapt your technique and control your skis on hills, all while having fun! By day's end you'll be confidently schussing downhill in grace and style.
