2018 Lesson Schedule

Classic Lessons have wrapped up but now the next step is Skate (Freestyle) Technique!  Wren Gilgan will be conducting a series of four lessons in the freestyle technique.  Lessons will be held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4:30 to 6 pm over a two week period – February 6th, 8th, 13th and 15th.
The lessons will help you learn or improve your skate ski technique.  There will also be work on downhill skills so that you can navigate all of our trails!!

Meet up at the Wax Cabin.  The fee for the full session is $50 for members and $80 for non-members.

All non-members must pay the day-use fee of $10.  Ski rentals are available at a reduced rate of $10 per day or there is a seasonal rate of $60.  Please click on this link for more information on our rental skis and contact information for Harriet Larsen.

Make sure you show up early enough to get your skis waxed up for the session!


For further information on the lessons or to pre-register, please contact Doug Campbell at 250-692-7300 or email Wren.

Are you interested in becoming an Instructor?

We can arrange to have a Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors Level One course held at OSC if we can get at least 8 people interested.  It would be a full weekend course and the fee is approximately $300.  It is great for improving your own technique plus it gives you all of the skills needed to teach adult classes.  Please talk to Doug Campbell if you are interested (phone or email using the info found on this page).

Would you prefer to have a private lesson?

Doug would be happy to arrange a private lesson with you that may be at a more convenient time as long as there is an instructor available.  A fee would be charged per hour.  Please contact him if you are interested to set up a time.

We are conducting a survey to see what skiers might want.

Please fill in this questionnaire and press submit.  Then we can build our program to meet the needs of our members!
