School Visits

Temiskaming Nordic invites your school /class to visit our club and trails and experience cross-country skiing.

We encourage teachers/supervisors to prepare their students for the visit by ensuring suitable clothing and proper etiquette both on the trails and in the chalet. We invite you to look at our web site section, ‘How to Start’ to learn more about the basics and also what to wear.

The club may be able to provide qualified instructors for organizations lacking experienced ski coaches. Please contact us to see if basic group training would be possible.

From a risk management perspective, teachers/supervisors are encouraged to have adequate skiing background and may decide to receive additional training prior to the school visit. Workshops may be available to provide basic introduction to the technique essentials for novice skiers. Please watch for training dates on the calendar of events or contact us to organize a training session.
