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.
This program is hosted in partnership with Lakewood Golf Course, and parking fees have been graciously sponsored by the Jim Browne Foundation. However, donations are welcomed!
