Looking for a new challenge? Looking for a new activity to help you stay fit? If you’ve never tried cross country skiing, this winter is the best time to do so! Learn from BC Para-Nordic Team Coach and from former Paralympians. If you’ve skied before and want to come back to the sport, this invite is for you too!

Cost for the clinic is $25 per para-skier. Ski equipment rental, trail pass and coaching for you and your guide/support person are all included. You may bring one guide/support person/family member for free!

BONUS!  We are running an optional Para-Biathlon session in the afternoon. If you are interested in trying your marksmanship with an air rifle, please indicate your interest below and our coaches will teach you and give you an opportunity to do Para-Biathlon!
