Led by Nordic Technical Director Chris Clarke.  Whether it's your first time out, you are a seasoned cross-country skier, or you are somewhere in between, consider taking a lesson with our team of Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI).  They will help you improve your technique, face hills with confidence and reduce your risk of injuries.

Cross-country skiing is divided into two types - Classic and Skate.

Lesson information

Group lessons are available to registered members on most day trips throughout the season at no additional charge. 

You must register for your lesson before the trip deadline through the online system.  On the day of your lesson, show up 10 minutes before the lesson starts and you will be grouped with others of the same ability level.

Lesson Groups

Our ski school uses ability levels to teach students with similar abilities, pace and improvement goals.

Your ability level will be assessed in a brief interview when you gather for lessons and possibly a short ski/riding assessment by an instructor.  The ability level will be used to group you with others of similar ability and skills and makes your lesson productive and fun as you all work on similar goals. 

Alpine Levels range from Step 1-10, Snowboard levels range from Never-ever to Advanced, and Nordic offers Classic and Skate lessons.

Are you a beginner skier looking for more support?  Afternoon lessons are provided to members up to and including Step 3.  After your morning lesson, let your instructor know that you will return after lunch for more guided mileage with our team.

Guests of members participating in a day trip and travelling via NTSC luxury coach are invited to join a morning group lesson. There is no additional charge for this lesson. Registration of a guest must be done by a member via the online system and the guest will be required to sign a waiver on the bus.  As with the guest policy, a guest can take up to 2 lessons with the club in a season.

We live in and around the city and love to ski and snowboard! Established in 1960, North Toronto Ski Club is a traveling downhill/alpine, cross-country and snowboard club run by member volunteers. Our club is small enough to be open and friendly but big enough to provide all the benefits of a large ski club of 1,100 members.
