Cross-Country Skiing with CanoeSki

CanoeSki Discovery Company is an eco-adventure travel company specializing in cross-country skiing and wilderness canoeing. Cliff Speer, owner and operator, has been offering adventure training and tours for over twenty years.

Cliff welcomed Tourism Saskatchewan's blogging team and gave them a condensed version of CanoeSki’s “Learn to Ski” course at Kinsmen Park in Saskatoon. They learned all the basics; classic techniques, balance and weight transfer, double poling, etc. Even in -30 degree Celsius weather and a few face plants later, the team had a ton of fun with Cliff and you can see it all here:  http://tourismsaskatchewan.tumblr.com   

As their name suggests the CanoeSki Discovery Company offers both canoeing and cross-country skiing tours. If you’d like to learn more about the courses and packages they offer, including “Learn to Ski”, visit their website: www.canoeski.com.  

Once you’ve had a chance to learn the proper techniques, there are many areas in and around Saskatoon with groomed trails for you to enjoy.
