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.

Events

The Club supports the Come & Try Day, ACT Ski Sale & Expo, organises the Kosciuszko Tour Ski Race, runs Lodge Weekends in the mountains, ski tours for club members, and social meetings in Canberra.




Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, existing financial members from 2019 have had their membership extended to cover the 2020 season. if members would like to make a voluntary donation to support the club a this time, they can do so via this Register Now link.

New members can join the club in 2020 for a reduced rate of $10 individual or $20 family via this Register Now link.

CCCSC brings members together for day, overnight and longer ski tours from June to November, snow conditions permitting. The tours are graded according to difficulty, terrain and distance and are led by volunteer Club members.  Details here.

Social Meetings

Club social meetings are held at the Hughes Community Centre, Whittle Street or Hughes Place, Hughes, 7:30pm for a 7.45 start.

The next Social Meeting will be held on Wed 23 September and is the club’s Annual General Meeting.  Following the ‘business’ component of the meeting, we will mark the occasion with gluhwein over an informal discussion.  During the discussion, members will have the opportunity to share their personal experiences of what they have found helpful in taking their skiing skills forward.  The aim is to have an informal exchange of ideas focused on more general approaches rather than precise technicalities, which can be saved for on-snow training.

Due to current restrictions we are limited to only 20 people at social meetings. People can book to attend here. The Club’s COVID 19 Safety Plan for the Social Meetings is provided for guidance.

Cross-Country skiing can be a leisurely tour on a track or in the backcountry, and it can an adrenaline-pumping, heart-pounding sport when citizen racing or descending a mountain by telemark or alpine techniques.
