Learn to Cross-Country Ski in the Backcountry!

Experience Colorado's finest snow, away from the crowds and expensive lift tickets! Learn to cross-country ski and get prepared to ski backcountry trails using classic Nordic-style technique. (No AT or Tele gear allowed in this school.) We can accommodate students ranging from never-evers to folks who have skied for years and just want to fine tune their skills.  We’ve got a class that is right for you!  Classes are small, often less than ten students, with at least two instructors.  Just ask around - your fellow CMC members are our best marketing tools!


Fee: $95 for CMC Denver Group members. Fee includes the lecture, three days of lessons, a trail pass for the first on-snow day and lift ticket for the second. $85 for trip leaders, and returning students who were enrolled in one of the last three years. Contact CMC member services at 303- 279-3080 x2 and request the discount.

Denver Group Policy: All requests for a refund must be made to the school director.  Refunds of 100% (less a $10 charge) will only be made if a written request is made 30 days before the first class. Refunds of 50% will be made if a written request is made within 30 days before the first class. No refunds will be made after the first class.  If a waitlist has been established for the school, and a replacement is found, a member can receive a refund (less a $10 processing fee).  NO other requests will be honored.
