CROSS COUNTRY SKIING LULEÅ
Cross country skiing has a special place in Sweden’s culture and history. Over the years, skiing has moved from being a way of transportation, to pure, social fun. It is a clean, easy and wonderful way to travel through the Arctic outdoors. The basics are easy to learn. However, the learning curve will be much steeper with good instructions rather than struggling on your own. This course is accessible for all ages and levels of experience.
The focus is on the basic skills and techniques of classic or skate skiing. You will learn the basics of starting, stopping, turning and gliding across the snow on cross-country skis. After this you go together with your trainer on the trail to practice your new found skills and discover a great way to get outside in the winter!
The classes takes places at the Ormberget Outdoor Centre close to the centre of the city. The view from the Ormberget Centre is fantastic, you can see the whole of the city of Luleå before you. The centre has a ski slope, a sledging slope, an extensive network of lighted cross-country skiing tracks, restaurant, service-cabin, fireplaces and more.
