This year we have four instructors…
Aengus McCullough – Aengus discovered the delights of cross country skiing when he moved to Alberta from the UK in 2011. After floundering in the snow for his first winter season he realized that skiing was not as effortless as it looked and decided to join Edmonton Nordic to develop his technique. Aengus progressed through Edmonton Nordic’s adult skiing program through to their Master’s program after which he went on to take CANSI instructor courses so he could help others on their skiing journey.
Alex McDonald – Alex was born and raised in Barrier B.C, his parents had him on skis as soon as he could walk. Alex has grown up racing on skis and after high school moved to Whistler to train and race at the Callaghan Valley Training Centre for 2 years.
