The Lander Valley High School Cross Country Ski Team will be giving ski lessons on Saturday February 1stfrom 10 am – noon at Beaver Creek**.
All ages and abilities are welcome. This is great opportunity to learn ways to improve your classic or skate skiing, learn tips on how to ski more efficiently and faster or to try out cross country skis for the first time. If you are new to the trails at Beaver Creek and have always wanted to see what they are like—come for a guided tour!
There is no set cost for the clinic but donations to help skiers attend the USSA Cross Country Junior Nationals Championships in March would be greatly appreciated.
Ski rentals are available at Gannett Peak Sports, open Friday until 6 pm (it’s a good idea to rent beforeSaturday).
Given the forecast, it is very unlikely that the clinic can be held at the golf course, however,
**IF we receive more snow before Saturday and the conditions at the Golf Course vastly improve, we may move the clinic to the golf course. If the snow in town looks good, take an extra 5 minutes and swing into the golf course parking lot to see if we are there.
Directions: Beaver Creek trails are about 22 miles from Lander, about a 30 minute drive when road conditions are good, up the South Pass Hwy 28 toward Atlantic City. The parking area is on the right (West) side of the highway. Plan to arrive at the parking lot around 9:30 to allow time to walk to the trails and sign in. Walk from the parking lot, under the bridge to the ski trails. Be prepared for windy, winter conditions. Dress in warm, synthetic layers (preferably no cotton). Registration next to the kiosk opens at 9:45 a.m. Water will be available.
