The Cross Country Ski season will soon be upon us. Every year the Pagosa Nordic Club grooms many X-C trails and offers free cross-country ski clinics to locals and guests who are visiting the area. The clinics are for beginner and intermediate skiers in either classic X-C skiing or skate skiing skills.
We have had great attendance at the clinics, and folks are thrilled with learning new techniques in both classic and skate skiing. Our qualified instructors volunteer their precious time so that new and seasoned skiers can truly enjoy the X-C experience and improve their abilities. Even though there is no charge for the clinics, Nordic club gladly accepts donations any time! Donations are used for trail maintenance and equipment as well as hosting ski clinics and ski socials.
Because of the wonderful turnout in the past, we are in need of more instructors for this year’s clinics on Saturday mornings, December 13, January 10, and February 7.
If you have been an instructor or are an upper level skier who would like to teach, please contact Nancy Burke at 970-731-5901. We are happy to work with you and show you the basics of X-C ski instruction progressions. It’s one way you can share this wonderful sport and pastime with others and give back to our community!
