Description

Learn how to cross country ski with a complete beginning video lesson from 20-year veteran ski instructor, Emily Wexler. Emily covers the equipment, how to go, stop, turn, fall and get up, and enjoy the entire resort. Her easy-going style helps first-time skiers learn to enjoy the snow and the beautiful outdoors.

Twenty one professionally filmed and edited video chapters cover how to go, stop and turn. Chapters are downloaded (not streamed) so they can be watched off-line out on the trails at the ski resort. Watch the lesson and practice each technique and, in about an hour, you'll be ready for a ski around the resort.

Includes the following chapters:

Introduction
Can You Cross Country Ski?
Equipment
History of Cross Country Skiing

Emily's lesson is designed for the average person with no prior skiing experience. By the end of the lesson you will be comfortable on the beginner trails at any cross country ski resort.

Customer Reviews

Great for the casual XC skier

If you only cross country ski once a year like me, this app makes it easy to remember what you need to know to be safe and have fun. It doesn't take the place of professional instruction, but is a handy, accessible trove of useful information. You have to download each video, so can take a while with a slow connection, and clips are very short, but still useful.

Could Be Better

Not the same quality as the Ski School downhill skiing app. Video progress should be recorded, techniques should broken up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced, with more advanced techniques added. Finally, a bit more enthusiasm as well as a video of actual trail skiing would be nice. Great start!

Horrible
