Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center
Veteran skiers and ski coaches will help boost your confidence and skill on skis. Cross country skiing is such a great way to enjoy Maine winters, and these clinics are designed to get you skiing with confidence for the rest of the winter.
Skiers can rent xc-ski gear from Midcoast Conservancy. Once everyone is outfitted for the morning, we’ll head out onto the trails. Throughout the session, we’ll cover the basics of safe skiing from technique to trail etiquette. By the end of the morning your confidence will be boosted and you’ll be ready to keep practicing all winter. We’ll do our best to make sure that the pace of the day meets everyone’s needs and abilities.
The clinic costs $30 for Midcoast Conservancy members and $35 for non-members. XC-ski equipment rentals are $20 per class. Space is limited and pre-registration is required!
Be sure to dress in warm, active clothes appropriate for the weather and avoid wearing cotton in favor of wool or synthetic fabrics. Bring a snack and a warm drink.
