A club membership and payment of CCA and CCC fees is a PREREQUISITE to taking the course due to insurance requirements.

Skiers will not be allowed to participate in the course if they do not have their membership before the class starts.

Registration Information

Will the Course Run? Refund Information

Minimum registration requirements are outlined for each type of class.  If the minimum registration is not met four days prior to the first class, the course will be cancelled, or if appropriate, combined with another class.

Refunds will only be issued if the course is cancelled by ENSC and/or the instructor OR a student is unable to attend the entire course due to injury/illness.

Make up sessions are not generally permitted.

The decision on cancellation and/or rescheduling of individual classes due to weather/snow conditions is at the discretion of each instructor.  If snow conditions prevent offering the entire on snow portion of the course, participants will receive a refund.


All ENSC instructors are club members, and are trained & certified by the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI).

Intermediate and Advanced lessons are taught by CANSI Level 2 or Level 3 instructors


Most courses run out of Gold Bar Park Pavilion, just south of the river and east of 50th Street.  Lessons may take place at Victoria Park.


Students need to have their own equipment. The club does not have any equipment for rent at this time.

There are no skate ski rentals in Edmonton and the club is working to a way to make equipment available for lessons.

Daily rentals are available from Totem Outdoor Outfitters and MEC. Totem Outfitters also has a selection of new and used equipment. Specialty XC ski stores include Fast Trax and Track ‘n Trail.

If you are already an ENSC member you can ask for a discount at some of these stores.
