Adult ski lessons 2018/2019

Our adult ski lessons in 2017/2018 were such a great success we are planning more this year. 

Lesson series will begin in January and run through March. Each series will include 4 lessons (plus one flex day the following month in case of cancellations due to weather). Later in the season, we’ll also offer skate skiing lessons.

January lessons

Registration for the January lessons is now open on Zone4.ca.

Two sessions are available:

  • Wednesdays, 7-9 pm, Frostbitten Night Owl – Intermediate classic, headlamp required
  • Sundays, 1:30-3:30, Beginner/intermediate classic

The cost for 4 lessons is $80 for members or $120 for non-members (which includes a $40 trail fee).

For more details or to express interest contact Steve Reitsma at ykskiclubprograms@gmail.com. 

What about equipment? 

Participants must provide their own boots, skis and poles. If you don’t have equipment, rentals are available at Overlander Sports. Any ski rentals at Overlander include access to our trails, which means non-members who rent skis save $40 on trail fees. Conversely, members of our club receive a 10 per cent discount on new ski equipment at Overlander. 

(Also, watch our Facebook page. Any used gear for sale that we hear about will be posted there.)
