Introduction to X-Country Skate Skiing – Complete Beginners
It’s time to try out a new activity! Cross-country skate 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 kilometres of skating pistes in Davos Klosters provide boundless variety in a beautiful landscape.
Otto van Andel, Cross-Country Ski Instructor, will teach you the basics of Cross-Country Skate Skiing in a 2-hour lesson.
You will meet Otto at Diethelmpromenade Parking (5 min walk from the train station Klosters Platz) at 09:30 and will finish the course around 11:30 am.
There will be a second course on Saturday 27 February, to practice what you will have learned two weeks before and improve your technique (https://meetup.com/touringmonkeys/events/276146555).
Equipment rental (Cross-country skate skiing)
You have the possibility to rent the equipment (Nordic Set Skating) at Intersport Andrist, located between the train station and the meeting point. You can book it online in advance (https://www.intersportrent.ch/en/shop/shop/list?location-hint=1).
The price for the rental is CHF 39.
