The Fernie Nordic Society is pleased to facilitate adult nordic ski lessons with trained, certified coaches. All coaches offering lessons through FNS are certified with CrosscountryBC and have received LearnToTrain L2T training, practical experience certification, Ethical Decisions Evaluation, and an external ski assessment. All that to say - they are great skiers and great coaches!
We encourage all trainees to be (or become) FNS members to support the ongoing maintenance of our facilities. For those who are not members, you must purchase a day pass for all lesson days to satisfy our insurance requirements. A $10 fee per lesson day will necessarily be added to your lesson fee for this purpose. If you would like to become a member instead, please do so here.
Adults can register for group or private lessons. Group lessons are offered on pre-set dates, see the calendar below for all series dates. See at bottom of this page for private lessons.
To pay for lessons you have registered for, please use the PayPal link on the right-hand side of this page (above the "Pay Now" button, there is a space to put a Note, simply add Adult lessons and the coach's name).

Lesson General Information
• All revenue generated by FNS from adult lessons will be reinvested into our coach training and professional development programs so that we can continue to provide high quality programming.
• Payment and trails fees (only applicable if not a current FNS member) must be received prior to your first lesson.
Private lessons for adults are also available: To request a private lesson, please complete this online form and a coach will be in touch to confirm date, time and process lesson fees.
If you have questions, please email email@example.com The number of adults interested in group and weekly lessons has increased dramatically this year, so we are working to design programs to meet this demand.
