Are you tired of crowded ski slopes? Do you want to ski for months before the resorts open and after they close?

Are you a bushwalker who would like to explore the mountains in winter? Are you a runner or skater who would like to try racing on snow?

Canberra Cross-Country Ski Club is a friendly club for all cross-country, nordic, telemark and back-country skiers who live in Canberra or the surrounding region.

We do Cross Country Skiing for all skills and inclinations.
