We have a great team here at Otway who love to share the passion of Nordic Skiing with others. Whether it is your first time, or your 100th+, classic and skating lessons are available in private, semi private or group settings. We can tailor lessons to your particular needs and to fit your schedule. Our lessons are offered by request (with at least 24 hours notice) and based on instructor availability. Prices do not include rentals.  If you are not a member of CNSC, trail passes are 50% off with a lesson.  Unless you are a family cohort, private lessons are a maximum of three students per lesson with one instructor. All of our instructors are members of the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI)
