Learn how to cross country ski with a complete beginning video lesson from 20-year veteran ski instructor, Emily Wexler. Emily covers the equipment, how to go, stop, turn, fall and get up, and enjoy the entire resort. Her easy-going style helps first-time skiers learn to enjoy the snow and the beautiful outdoors.

Twenty one professionally filmed and edited video chapters cover how to go, stop and turn. Chapters are downloaded (not streamed) so they can be watched off-line out on the trails at the ski resort. Watch the lesson and practice each technique and, in about an hour, you'll be ready for a ski around the resort.
