Cross country skiing is fun, safe, and it’s easy to learn or to improve your existing skills with professional instruction. GMNC offers Group Ski Clinics for skiers of all abilities from first timers to advanced skiers. Our instructor team is made up of expert XC ski professionals so you will be learning from the very best in Western Colorado! Skiers who take more than one clinic will benefit from exposure to different instructors. Our group ski clinics are a great way to improve your technique in a fun atmosphere with other skiers. We group 6 – 8 skiers of similar ability with one instructor to allow for an optimal learning experience.
