Ski Lessons for Adults

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM TARAH
I would like to thank each and every one of the clients that I had the opportunity to coach this season. Your support has been very much appreciated by myself and the Fernie Nordic Society as we aim to grow the sport of cross country skiing here in Fernie. I am confident that each of you left your lesson with new technique skills and helpful information that will lead to a greater enjoyment of the sport.

What a wonderfully busy season of lessons! As such, I am at capacity for new clients and I will not be booking any more lessons in the 2020/2021 season. If you are a returning client from this season, I will do my best to squeeze you into what is left of my very limited availability up until March 12th. Please email me as soon as possible. I will be unable to accommodate requests for lessons after March 1st.

A few changes have been made to our pricing and lesson offerings this year. Under the current restrictions we will not be offering adult group programs until further notice. Private (1 person – 1hr lessons) and semi-private (up to 3 people in the same household – 1.5hr lessons) are available for booking.

The scheduled availability is what works best for Tarah, but there may be very limited weekend and afternoon options available by request. Please contact Tarah through this website for available dates.

Private, Semi-Private Classic / Skate Lessons

Private and semi-private lessons are available on request. Please email Tarah to request a lesson and she will try to fit your schedule.
Please note that semi-private lessons are for household members only.

Pricing for the lessons is as follows:
