Private Lessons:

Book a private lesson, either to learn to Cross country ski for the first time, or to improve your skills either on the flats or on the hills.

Beginner lesson - Take this 2.5 hour beginner XC ski class. This course teaches you the basic skills of balance, propulsion and how to glide on your xc skis.

Refresher class - If you haven't skiied in a few years, or you have skiied a lot, but have never had a lesson, start the year on the right foot.

Take a 2.5 hour private course with us to "build on the foundations". This class will enable you to build on your skills, to gain more glide and better grip. Find the smooth rhythm of Cross country skiing with the most efficient technique to use the least effort for the most efficiency!

Skill building - You took a lesson a few years ago, but did not get out much to practice those skills. Try a 2.5 hour skill building to bring you back into your stride!

Hill Techniques - Whether you are a new skier or you have skiied a long time, learning the best way to manage going up and down the hills will make your skiing safer and more fun. Gain confidence in different snow conditions by learning how to gain control of your skis on the hills.

Start off with the level terrain techniques, then book a second lesson to develop you skills for efficiency going uphill and confidence going down hill.

"I learned more from Julie at a four hour cross country hills course than I learned in 12 hours over six sessions with another group. Even though there were 10 other member of our group, I felt like I was getting a private lesson because Julie gave insights to me and each member of our group based on the goals for the session we shared with her prior to starting. Highly recommend Julie and Full Circle Adventures!"

"I took the hill technique for classic xc skiing with Julie and it was fantastic! Before the lesson I would avoid certain trails because I was nervous of downhills, but at the end of the lesson I was excited for some downhills because I felt confident on my skis. We started with small skills and would build one them through out the class. It was a great experience. I would highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to gain confidence and control on downhills!"

"If you’re looking for a ski instructor that is approachable, knowledgeable, and hilarious, it’s Julie! Julie was able to take a group of 9 individuals with different ski experience and tailor a day to fit everyone’s needs. She made us feel safe & comfortable and was able to touch on things specific for each of us to work on. I can’t get over how much I learned and I’m SO excited to get out skiing again and apply everything that I learned today.

Julie, thank you for being such a wonderful teacher. You are such a lovely authentic person! Thank you for sharing your knowledge & passion for the outdoors with us today!"
