Ski club offering lessons


The Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club will be holding “Learn to Ski 2009” lessons this weekend (Feb. 14-15) at the Rock Inlet trails.
For all beginners, or those wanting to “work on their skills,” a pair of sessions to learn the fundamentals of cross-country skiing will be held Saturday.
A youth session will run from 11 a.m.-noon, followed by an adult session from 3:30-5 p.m.
Then on Sunday, there will be an introduction to skate skiing for adults from 1-2:30 p.m.
Learn the “skate” technique and you will wish winter never ended. Balance and gliding skills make this technique fast and fun.
No prior experience is necessary.
Private sessions will be available earlier Sunday from 9 a.m.-noon in one-hour slots.
The cost for youth lessons is a maximum donation of $10 (cash only) while the cost for adults is a donation of $15 (cash only)
Those interested in attending the lessons must provide your own equipment or rent.
