Covid-19 and Nordic Skiing

Unfortunately in these difficult times, account has to be taken of the virus.  Happily, Nordic skiing avoids most of the issues.


All courses take place outdoors, in an open and natural environment, perfect for maintaining social distancing.  The distance between participants will be increased to 5 m in case of intense training involving heavy breathing.  Unlike downhill skiing, there are no ski lifts and therefore no queues or crowds.

If you book a lesson, either individually or in your own group, you will not share the lesson with anyone else.
