NORDIC SKI & SNOWSHOE

Nordic Skiing Cross-country skiing is more than just a cool winter sport. It's a body builder, a bottom sculptor, a shoulder shaper, but most importantly, its fun!

The mountain environment is a natural therapeutic cocktail: exquisite scenery, forces of nature, fresh air...producing a healthy soul, a whole, balanced person. Add to this the serenity and isolation of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing offers an aura of peace, and wrapping you in complete calm.


Unlike alpine skiing, cross-country is easier to learn. Equipment is lightweight and not intimidating. Then, there's even an easier route to your feeling of well being. Snowshoeing. If you can walk, you can snowshoe!
