Lessons, Tours & Clinics

Private Lessons and Tours

Whether its your first time on snow, or you enjoy our trails every week, we invite you to sign up for a lesson or tour with one of our skilled instructors.

Nordic Ski Lessons and Guided Ski Tours

Private ski lessons provide a friendly learning environment to learn the basic fundamentals of the sport or focus on your personal goals, while our instructors provide you with the skills and drills to take your ski technique to the next level.

As all lessons and guided tours are private they can be tailored to your individual needs. Classic, skate, or off-track options are available. Please indicate your preference when making a reservation.

Classic and Skate are two different techniques under the Nordic skiing umbrella. Beginners should opt for a classic ski lesson as it will build a strong foundation for all other techniques. Students interested in learning the basics of skate skiing should be aware that it is typically a multi-lesson process. Skate skiers should have good balance and be physically fit. Off-track skiing lessons are fundamentally classic technique but are geared for people who have wider skis and would like to learn how to ski off of the groomed trails.

Please note that Frisco Nordic Center is not a downhill ski resort. There are no lifts, we do not teach downhill skiing, and downhill and/or snowboarding equipment is not suitable for our trails.

Guided Snowshoe Tours

Guided snowshoe tours are a great way to enjoy a stroll through the meadows and woods of the Frisco Nordic Center. Guides will lead the way, share local history, and fun facts about flora and fauna.

2022 Clinics

Women’s Skate Ski Clinics

Women’s Skate Ski Clinics are a great way to develop skills, and meet other women who are interested in learning and skiing together. Join our local instructors as they teach the fundamental techniques of skate skiing. 

Participants must have previous ski experience, good balance, and be physically fit. If you are unsure if skate skiing is a good fit for you, consider signing up for a private skate lesson first.

Each clinic meets weekly for four weeks, excluding holidays, with 2 hours of instruction each day. 2 instructors per clinic, max 20 participants.

Clinic days may not be switched to make up for missed sessions and there are no discounts provided. If you are unable to make all four days please consider taking private lessons instead as instruction is progressive throughout the clinic.
