Learn to ski day- January 21: Free Cross Country Ski lessons in Skate or Classic Format.
Due to a lack of available rental skis locally, we only provided free lessons last year to persons who could bring their own equipment. However, there is a chance that rental skis will again be available this coming year. If you would like to have lessons, we are planning for a day of free lessons on Sunday January 21, 2024 starting at noon. 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 Wednesday January 17, 2023 for the January 21 lesson 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 we will try to accommodate your request.
Lessons typically are given in small groups and last about an hour.
