Cross country skiing and roller skiing

Skiing in London?  Yes!  Join our community of cross country skiing enthusiasts based in and around the Capital.  Find out about the benefits of joining LRNSC and more about this Club

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.
