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.
Maine Sport Outfitters will be on site to rent xc-ski gear and to talk about choosing the right equipment for you. 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 $15 for Midcoast Conservancy members and $20 for non-members. XC-ski equipment rentals are just $12. Space is limited and pre-registration is required!
Be sure to dress in warm, active clothes appropriate for the weather. Avoid wearing cotton in favor of wool or synthetic fabrics. Bring a snack and a warm drink.
