Looking for a low-impact, high aerobic activity in a low key social setting? Our Women on Winter XC Skiing Class and Tour has just what you are looking for. Learn how much fun cross country skiing can be. This class teaches “Classic” technique.
We begin with indoor instruction and equipment fitting followed by one hour of on-snow instruction and practice how to get up from a fall, proper pole placement, different ski techniques such as poling and striding, how to engage the ski with the snow, and how to slow down or stop. The remainder of the class time is left for you to practice what you learned. Location for this experience is Aldeen Golf Course. We will meet inside the clubhouse.
The price for this experience is $40 and includes skis, boots, poles, and a $5 Rocktown gift certificate. If you have your own equipment but want to pick up the knowledge, the price is $20. Class size is limited to 12 so don’t delay. Call 815-636-9066 or sign up below to reserve your spot.
We need a minimum of 3 participants and the cooperation of Mother Nature to hold the class. In the event Mother Nature does not cooperate or we fail to get the minimum amount of participants we will make a decision 24 hrs in advance. We will post on our website and Facebook and call all participants.
