Our meeting point is minutes from the ski trails, we will be on our skis right after the introductions and once we have established what your goals are for the session. My classic guided tours can be tailored to the beginner skier who is still learning or the advanced skier seeking advice on their technique. My 2-4hrs guided tours include an hour lesson where will cover all the basic skills for beginner, intermediate or advance techniques, whether you are looking for efficiency or learning how to move and stop on the trails. The lesson will be followed by a guided ski where you can apply your new skills on the trails while exploring the incredible surroundings our Parks have to offer. We will pause part way through the session to enjoy a provided hot beverage and homemade treats. Come join me for a lesson or a guided tour into the winter wonderlands of Lake Louise.
