Cross-Country Ski Basics

Learning to cross-country ski can have roadblocks – most of the time you have to already have the equipment to see if you even like it.  Parker Dam allows you to get around this roadblock by providing the equipment so you can discover whether you like it before investing in your own equipment.  We will cover the basics: how to fall down, get up, turn, stop, and so on.  This year, due to predicted lack of winter weather, there won’t be the typical fee for the program – skiing participants may instead make a donation for the wear and tear on the equipment.  And, this program is weather-dependent – in the event of no snow we will discuss cross-country ski equipment, and then take a winter walk.
