Beginners are students who have never cross country skied before. Trips will be focused on teaching the basic fundamentals.

Please check with the trip leader if you are unsure which trip to register for.


The Mountaineers has a fleet of XC skis that students may borrow from. Limited availability. First come, first served. 

When registering for a ski trip, please respond to the leader with the following.

Do you have your own XC skis? If yes, which type?

If no, what is your shoe size & height?


Note: These are the options. Within two weeks of the trip, the type of trip will be indicated here.

Groomed Trails: This is a trip that will go on groomed ski trails which will accommodate both classic and skate style. 

Non-Groomed Trails: This is a trip that will go on ungroomed trails or forest roads which will not accommodate skate skis. Classic skis are required, preferably with metal edges. 

Using leader's permission, answer all the questions and let us know if you have a preference on the type of terrain.
