Cross Country Skiing for Beginners

Come to Sinnemahoning State Park on Saturday, February 2nd, for a fun lesson on the popular sport of cross-country skiing.

Experienced skier and former downhill ski instructor, Curt Weinhold, will explain the basics of cross-country skiing, equipment, and techniques and guide beginners in practicing the "kick and glide" method.

Program will begin indoors with basic instruction, then head outdoors to a flat area to practice techniques.  When participants are ready, Curt will lead the group on a short ski trip down the Lowlands Trail.

All equipment, including skis, poles, and boots will be provided. A limited number of adult sizes are available.  Participants should dress in wicking, breathable layers and wear a waterproof outer layer.  No jeans please.

Pre-registration is required by Thursday, January 31.  Be sure to include your shoe size in the "Additional Information" section.
