Cross Country > Clinics



Tahoe Donner Cross Country has one of the leading ski schools in the nation. As our reputation continues to grow, more people are taking lessons. We are looking to train new instructors to join our team. If you are passionate about the sport, and enjoy working with adults and/or children, plan on joining us Dec. 4 and/or Dec. 11 to see if teaching cross country skiing could be right for you.

These are free clinics with no requirement to become an instructor, but if you find you like teaching, and are interested in part time winter employment, Tahoe Donner Cross Country is a great place to work. We have part time midweek, and weekend and holiday positions available.

Intermediate and above skiing skills are required. These classes will focus on teaching classic technique to beginners as this is the majority of lessons our new instructors teach. Ongoing training is offered in our ski school for teaching more advanced skills, ski skating, and coaching our kids programs.

Sunday, Dec. 4 (9 a.m. to 12 p.m.)
Sunday, Dec 11 (9 a.m. to 12 p.m.)
(We recommend you attend both days if you can)
Cost: Free. Basic rental equipment is available free of charge if needed.


Tahoe Donner Cross Country prides itself on offering clinics with some of the region’s best instructors. Learn from some of the best instructors in the area!

Ski Improvement Clinics: Offered most weekends on different topics to help you improve your classic and skate techniques and skiing fun.

For updates on clinics offered this winter, subscribe to our cross country email list.


Tahoe Donner’s biathlon coaches offer clinics throughout the season. Biathlon combines skiing and rifle marksmanship. After range instruction and practice with our specially designed laser biathlon rifles, you will ski or snowshoe a short loop and try to hit the targets with an elevated heart rate, just like at the Olympics!

We also offer an after school Laser Biathlon program for kids – See our programs page for more information.
