The Outdoor Center offers a cross-country ski school formula.

For older children and groups, an initiation program for the discovery of cross-country skiing. Classes from January 7 to February 25.

The mission: give you a taste for the pleasures of winter while staying in a recreational cross-country skiing setting not for competition, but mainly all for self-fulfillment and the joy of sport.

These programs aim to encourage participation and enjoyment of sports practice while developing basic techniques that improve motor skills. These programs also aim to develop self-confidence and social skills.
