Program Description: The cross country ski program is the result of a wonderful partnership with Lafleur Ski Rentals, Ausome Ottawa, CHEO, and the City of Ottawa. These organizations have come together to offer the amazing opportunity to get out in the snow and learn to cross country ski.
This 5 week program (1 week orientation and fitting | 4 weeks on the snow) allows athletes the chance to learn to balance and move on skis in a fun and supported environment. Cross country ski coaches from the Terry Fox athletic centre will teach ski basics on the facilities ski track. Athletes will participate alongside peers of the same abilities in games and activities in order to develop the coordination and love of skiing.
