Michigan Tech Nordic Ski Club

Free Beginning to Ski Lessons for Members

New to skiing? No problem! Show up for beginner/novice lessons on Thursdays or Saturdays.

These lessons are intended for people who have never skied before to those who want to learn

the basic uphill and downhill techniques. No advance sign-up is necessary, just show up.

Lesson Times:

Thursday Saturday
5:00-6:00pm 1:00-2:00pm
6:00-7:00pm 2:00-3:00pm

We will typically have three instructors there and they will sort people by technique (classic or

skate) and ability level.

Intermediate and Beyond: Training and Racing Team

The Club Team provides a low key environment for intermediate, and beyond skiers to get instruction, work out, train, and learn together. Some members are training for races. We meet at the Tech Trailhead Mondays from 6:00-7:00pm. Skate and classic techniques alternate weekly.

Contact Owen Cruikshank ( for any general questions about lessons.
