Cross Country Ski Clinic

Sunday, Jan. 12


Winter sports are a revered pastime, especially in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States. As soon as snow falls, eager skiers, boarders and snowshoers pack up their gear and head to their favorite winter wonderland for a new adventure. For beginners, however, learning something like Nordic skiing can be intimidating. Besides rounding up all the equipment, it can be difficult to find a willing teacher for a newcomer.

That's where the Bogus Basin Nordic Team comes in. They are enthusiastically ready and able to teach you the ways of cross country skiing. Anyone at any level is invited to attend in order to learn or improve Nordic skills.

There are two sessions available, and you can participate in one or both as you delve into skate or classic stride variations with the help of an instructor.

The new year is a time for change, and this is an opportunity to break out of your mold--literally, the butt groove you've imprinted on your couch--and ski your way to health and a blissful relationship with nature.

Recall the words of your physical education teacher imploring you to set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely; this one fits the bill, so you can finally tell Coach GetUpYaLazyBum you've taken his advice to heart.
