Learn to Cross-Country Ski (Part 2)

++ Get out (but, like, not too far). We all love and appreciate the positive effects of the Maine outdoors. Hopefully we’ll be back to all kinds of adventuring soon. But for now, press pause. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry has some great advice: stay close to home, steer clear of busy locations, keep your distance (and stick to walking/hiking with folks from your household). ++

Learn to Cross-Country Ski (Part 2) @ Lakewood Golf Course

Come spend the afternoon learning how to cross-country ski! In Part 2 of this two-part series, coaches will show you how the basics of shuffling, gliding, and turning. Don’t expect a boring lecture or intimidating skill tests. We’ll play lots of games! 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 plenty of water and snacks as this is a deceitfully tiresome activity! Attendance to Part 1 is not required to participate in Part 2. Meet at the warming hut just across the street from the Lakewood Clubhouse. If you need to borrow cross-country skis, fill out this form:

This is a free community event of the Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) of Main Street Skowhegan in collaboration with Lakewood Golf Course and the Jim Browne Foundation, who have graciously sponsored admission fees! However, donations are welcomed.
