Cross-country skate skiing lesson – Beginners
Cross-country skiing is considered one of the healthiest sports. With a little bit of momentum and the use of the poles, almost all muscles of the body are evenly stressed. More than 75 kilometers of skating pistes in Davos Klosters provide boundless variety in a beautiful landscape.
You might have joined our course for beginners before, or have some previous experience, and you’re looking to practice more and improve your technique.
In this 2-hour lesson, you will refresh the basics of cross-country skate skiing, practice, and learn new skills.
This event is led by Otto van Andel, the cross-country skiing instructor.
What’s the plan?
Meet Otto at Diethelmpromenade car park (5 min walk from the train station Klosters Platz) at 09:30. The course finishes around 11:30 am.
No previous cross-country skiing experience is needed.
