BYOS Learn to Cross-Country Ski (Part 1)
February 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Come spend the afternoon learning how to cross-country ski! In Part 1 of this two-part series, our Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) 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 your cross-country skis, 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.
