Intro to Cross Country Skiing
Learn how much fun cross country skiing can be in a low key, social setting. Meet some new like minded people, learn a new skill. Have some fun in the snow…..we live in it, might as well learn to enjoy it! You will be surprised at what a GREAT total body activity this is.

The remainder of the class time is for you to practice what you learned.
