“Classic” skiing is also known as traditional cross-country skiing. The technique is similar to that of walking or running, but with skis on. We offer different packages from a one-on-one session to family lessons. We cater to both beginners and those who are advanced.

What to Expect During Your Ski/Skate Ski Lesson:

Rates
Individual: $60
Family Package: Starting at $160

Duration
90 minutes

Ski Lessons:
First-time Nordic skiers will learn the basics of classic, Nordic skiing. “Classic” skiing is also known as traditional cross-country skiing. The technique is similar to that of walking or running, but with skis on. Skis are meant to point forward and stay parallel to each other.

Group lessons are given to groups of 1 to 10 people. Group lessons are geared toward beginning skiers, but advanced instruction is available dependent upon the group’s needs.

Skate Skiing:
Skate skiing is a step up from classic skiing. The skis are different, and the technique is different. If you have ever ice-skated before, this style will likely come easier to you! Skate skiing is a more athletic style of Nordic skiing. It is super fun once you get the hang of it!

Passes Include:
A trail pass for each family member, good for one day.
An equipment rental package for each family member (includes skis, boots, and poles).
A 90-minute lesson with group and individual focus led by a kind and experienced instructor.

What to Bring:
Please dress for the elements. Temperatures can get as low as 11°F in the winter, however often you work up a good sweat when learning how to cross-country ski. We suggest you wear light, but warm layers underneath and warm layers on top so you have the option to shed layers as you warm up.

  • Sunglasses
  • Waterproof gloves or mittens
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen

Tanja
Had such a great time!

I did the private private lesson of cross-country skiing and had such a great time. Of course I fell a few times and started having cramps in my legs, as I was not used to do this at all, but Ken, the instructor and Tanner, the instructor in training, were both super patient and so encouraging that I had a wonderful time, even if I was really slow and had to start slow. A few times I was actually able to have the correct rhythm of gliding for a few seconds before I lost my balance again. I sure wish I could spend more time and learn this better to really be out there on the trail.

Best Nordic skiing in Arizona!
Elle
Great fun for first time skiiers

My bf and I went to Flagstaff with the intention to try cross country skiing and we were not disappointed! Including the trail pass and ski equipment rental, the 2 of us paid about $80 for a day of skiing. The trails were well marked and well-maintained with specific trails reserved just for cross-country skiiers (no snowshoes). Some of the trails were flat (not too much uphill or downhill) which was good for beginners like me. Will visit again!

The Flagstaff Nordic Center was a non-intimidating place to get back on skis for the first time as an adult.

I had not been cross country skiing since I was in highschool but now that I live in Flagstaff I have been wanting to try it. The trails are well marked and acurately labeled by difficulty. Beautiful setting too.
