No prior experience necessary. This course aims to teach the basic skills of traditional cross-country skiing. We spend most days in Osceola, NY located in the Tug Hill region of upstate New York. Not to be confused with downhill skiing, there are no ski lifts and no man-made snow. When not skiing, we spend time indoors – lunch is at the ski center, and nights are in a fishing lodge. In addition to skiing, participants cook group meals, do the dishes, and keep the lodge clean daily. Ski gear will be provided for all students, and appropriate ski clothing can be borrowed from the DVFriends ABLE lockers. There is no need to buy anything extra for this course.
DATES: February 15 - 20, 2021
