Private Cross Country Ski Lessons
Eb's has a number of experienced nordic ski instructors available to teach private lessons. They teach skate or classic, no age limit. Cost is $60/hr for a group of 4 or less; $20 per each additional person. Payment can be made at the lesson (cash or cheque), in person at the store, or over the phone with a credit card.
If you need to rent equipment, waxless skis are $15 per day and waxable or skate skis are $20 per day (see our rentals page). These include skis, boots and poles - everything you need for the lesson. You can come in ahead of time to get sized or you can do this over the phone if necessary (we need your height, weight and shoe size). If you pay ahead of time we can guarantee we have your sizes available for your lesson date.
If interested, please contact the store. An instructor will get back to you to set up a time and location that works best for all.
