Cross country skiing and roller skiing

Join and learn to roller ski - it's great for fitness and fun, plus it's the best way to prepare for cross country skiing.  There are sessions for children as well as tasters, courses and training/practice sessions for adults. We also organise the London series of roller ski races.  And you can cross country ski with us.
