All our instructors are BASI qualified (British Association of Snowsport Instructors) or national equivalent, and are total Nordic skiing enthusiasts who will give you an inspirational week of really challenging fun irrespective of your age, previous experience or fitness.
We run cross-country skiing holidays and courses with an emphasis on top quality instruction. We also run team challenge/building courses for schools, businesses and other groups.
Our Wadahl/Cross-Country (track) Skiing Skills holidays and Telemark Skiing Course are all based on the Wadahl Hotel, Gålå (full board) high in the mountains of Gudbrandsdalen, 80 km north of Lillehammer. Whilst boasting some of the best cross-country skiing in Norway, the added attractions of its own alpine slopes, mini-biathlon facility, race training, dog sledding and a nerve-tingling toboggan run, are all helping to turn Gålå into a popular destination for a wide cross-section of skiers of all ages and nationalities. Our Nordseter/Lillehammer Cross-Country (track) Skiing holiday is based on the Nordseter Sportell, which is located in the massive Sjusjøen/Nordseter ski area above Lillehammer.
Our Schools’ Easter half-term courses will continue to be delivered in Sjusjøen, Lillehammer with its superb Olympic ski tracks and facilities, while we will continue to run Corporate Team Building Courses at Wadahl. See below.
