Learn to Cross-Country Ski (Part 1)
March 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Come spend the afternoon learning how to cross-country ski! In Part 1 of this two-part series, coaches will show you how to use the gear and the basics of falling, stopping, ascending, and turning. Don’t expect a boring lecture or intimidating skill tests. We’ll play lots of games and hold group activities! After our skill-building session, we’ll go out on the trail to practice our new-found skills and discover a great way to get outside in the winter! Conclude the evening by defrosting at the warming hut.
Bring plenty of water and snacks as this is a deceitfully tiresome activity! Meet at the warming hut just across the street from the Lakewood Clubhouse. If you need to borrow cross-country skis, fill out this form: https://forms.gle/anYeebAih1pHrR4H7
This is a free community event of the Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) of Main Street Skowhegan in collaboration with Lakewood Golf Course and the Jim Browne Foundation, who have graciously sponsored admission fees! However, donations are welcomed.
