Skiing and Snow Boarding Lessons: Camp Fortune, Calabogie, Vorlage, Pakenham, Mont Cascades, and Edelweiss

Whether you are new to skiing or boarding or experienced, there was a lesson program that would either teach or further enhance your skills on snow (and perhaps correct some of those bad habits) to give you more confidence and competence. Lessons for both Adults and Children range from beginner through to advanced and racing.

Group Lessons for the 2017-2018 Season:

The club negotiated lesson packages with major hills deserving the NCR (such as Camp Fortune, Vorlage, Pakenham, Mont Cascades, Calabogie, and Edelweiss). Fortune Lessons were to be booked using the form that was provided on our website. All other lessons are to be booked directly with the respective hills - noting your membership with the National Capital Ski Club (to be verified with your membership card).

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Availability for group lessons is limited, and the deadline for registration vary between hills. We recommend registering before 30 Nov for all hills (with the exception of Camp Fortune, which has a deadline of 16 oct 2017).
