THIS MEETUP FORMS PART OF THE SNOWY MOUNTAINS WEEKEND TRIP. BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION THROUGH THE SNOWY MOUNTAINS WEEKEND MEETUP PAGE.
Learn to cross country ski with Australia's most experienced nordic instructors through the K7 Cross Country Ski School. Cross country skiers enjoy a longer season than resort skiers and are able to appreciate the freedom of the unique ski terrain that is, the Snowy Mountains. No queues, no ski passes, no crowds, no waiting, 100% action! Learn to race or cruise the main range or just enjoy skating or classic skiing on the groomed ski trails in Perisher Valley.
This is a full day adventure. We will do a 3 hour cross country ski lesson in the morning, followed by a tour in the afternoon. Suitable for beginners and experienced skiers.
