Course Description

Conditions permitting – Skate skiing is a fun, fast and exciting way to explore groomed cross-country skis trails. Our expert instructors will begin the course with a comprehensive overview of skate-skiing fundamentals, including weight transfer, poling and timing. They'll guide you, step by step, through skate-skiing basics, showing you the best techniques for various types of terrain. You'll also learn the difference between classic and skate skiing plus receive recommendations from your instructors on the equipment best suited for your interests.

You'll then practice what you've learned with your instructor on our groomed trails at Fogg Farm. You'll leave this course with the skills necessary to confidently skate ski on your own.

All necessary skate-skiing equipment is provided.

Please note this course is weather dependent.

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.
