Learn to ski day- February 5: Free Cross Country Ski lessons in Skate or Classic Format.
Due to a lack this year of available rental skis locally, we will only be providing free lessons this year to persons who can bring their own equipment. If you choose to come for lessons, let us know so we can plan for instructors by calling Phil at 715-372-5400 or Bob at 218-590-3051 by January 28, 2023 for the February 6 date. We will give lessons in skate and classic formats to beginning and intermediate skiers. You should plan to arrive by noon for lessons that start at 12:30 PM. If you would prefer a private lesson on another date, please let us know and will try to accommodate your request.
Currently, the warming house is open, but all of our instruction will be outside due to the Covid situation. Restrictions may change so bring a mask just in case they are needed. Lessons typically are given in small groups and last about an hour.
