Why learn to cross-country ski with HPSC?
Our certified instructors offer cross-country ski lessons on most bus trips (except the very start and very end of the season).
There are 5 levels for classic and skate. Below you will find explanations of each level to help you decide which level you should be in. Don't worry too much about it; when we see you ski, we can place you in the right group. All members who sign up in advance will receive lessons; we may not be able to accommodate those who do not register in advance.
Classic 1/Skate 1
Classic 2/Skate 2
Classic 3/Skate 3
Classic 4/Skate 4
Classic 5/Skate 5
In addition to regular lessons, we offer special clinics or programs through the season, including hill clinics, trail handling clinics, and tips and tricks sessions (15 minute sessions with an instructor to work on a particular skill). There is no additional cost for these programs. If we offer them, you can find the dates in our schedule. You register for them online when you register for the trip (except the beginners series - see below).There is no guarantee that we will offer special programs every the season; it depends on the number of instructors available.
We are bringing back our classic beginners series for 2024! This popular program is three sessions with the same instructor and classmates (Jan. 7, 14, 21) and is designed for new skiers. You must be available all three dates to participate (that's the point of it being a series!). If you are interested, please email email@example.com. If you can't commit to three dates, there are always other beginner lessons offered.
We also offer opportunities to train to become an instructor with the club. This is a great way to give back to the club and share your love of skiing and it is a great way to improve your own skiing. Email us to find out more!
