Come and Try Cross Country Skiing this Season

Ever wanted to try cross country skiing? There are 2 Come and Try Cross Country Skiing Days this season; Saturday July 8 and Saturday July 29 at the Perisher Nordic Trails.

The days involves a 2 hour lesson (9.00am-11.00am on July 8 and 1.00pm – 3.00pm on July 29) by a professional ski instructor, BBQ lunch (July 8 only) for $20 per person.

 

Hiring Equipment

You will need to bring your own cross country equipment. Skate of classic skis are ideal to hire for the groomed trails at Perisher.

Equipment can be hired from Mountain Adventure Centre (Jindabyne) , Wilderness Sports (Jindabyne & Perisher) or Rhythm Sports (Cooma).

Please allow plenty of time to collect your gear and If possible, hire them beforehand either online or by calling.

 

Skate or Classic Skiing – What’s the difference?

When you are looking at hiring equipment, you will notice that you can choose between skate and classic skis to hire. The come and try day caters for both styles so it is up to you what you choose to hire.

Cross country skiing involves two different styles. In Classic style the skis stay parallel most of the time and a grip section on the bottom of the skis stops them from gliding backwards. Skating uses slightly shorter skis designed only for gliding and features a distinctive V shape similar to in-line skating or ice skating.
