Learn to Cross Country Ski. 

AMC Novice Cross-Country Ski Workshop Learn the basics of cross-country skiing from the Nordic diagonal stride to ascending and descending hills at the Weston Ski Track, with easy access to Boston. This workshop is for beginner to advanced beginner cross-country skiers. Skiers also interested in skate skiing but who have never cross-country skied before will need to know these basics. Taught by experienced volunteers from the Appalachian Mountain Club's ski committee with a very low instructor to student ratio. Take this workshop if you have:

  • Never put on a pair of skis in your life
  • Downhill skied and now want to learn cross country
  • Some cross country ski experience but still not completely comfortable
  • Comfortable on flats, but need help on hills and a more efficient stride


Sign up for one night or two. Should conditions necessitate cancelling a session, the "rain date" will be announced. Fees of $22 (one night)-$40 (two nights) include ski pass and lesson. Weston offers rentals for an additional charge. Pre-registration and payment via the registration link is required. No event day sign-ups. Click here for information and registration.
