Course Description

Having your own dedicated coach is the best way to learn a new sport. Join us for a private cross-country skiing lesson tailored to your needs at beautiful Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine. In a one-on-one environment, our expert instructors will perform a complete analysis of your skills, helping identify challenges and providing technique refinements that will have you kicking and gliding more effectively in no time. They'll build upon your present skill set, adding advanced techniques for gliding faster and farther. They'll teach you simple tips on weight transfer, body position and effective poling, plus answer any questions you have about this exciting sport.

All necessary cross-country skiing equipment is provided. Price varies based on duration of lesson. If you'd like to add more participants, spend more time with an instructor or build your own custom adventure, please call 1-888-270-2326.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

**Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
