This trip requires prior Nordic skiing experience. We will be carrying heavy packs for the overnight, so it is important to know your fitness level. Cross-country skiing is one of the best forms of cardio vascular exercise you can get, it’s low impact, and therefore can be done at all ages.

MEET YOUR GUIDES & TRIP LEADERS

Ingrid Granlin

Ingrid Granlin

Our lead guide, Ingrid Granlin, grew up Nordic ski racing in Smithers, British Columbia. Her love for winter and skiing started as early as she could walk. In college she began coaching kids, then worked as a coach training facilitator teaching community level coaches in BC and Alberta for the National Coaching Certification Program and Cross-Country BC. Eventually she realized her strengths lay more in technique instruction, rather than coaching, and gained her level III Canadian National Association of Ski Instructors (CANSI) certification. She then became a level III Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) Instructor. Ingrid has taught as a professional instructor for over 20 years in Canada, the US, and Switzerland. She currently teaches for various camps around the west and is the owner of Glide Nordic Ski School.
