Ski Resorts Offer Free Nordic Lessons

based on a news article of The Flint Journal, "Free Nordic ski lessons available," by David V. Graham, Dec 26, 2008

Ten cross-country ski resorts in northern Michigan and Ontario will offer free Nordic ski lessons for adults and children on January 11.

The Great Lakes Winter Trails Council has been providing this service for over 20 years. Children who participate get free beginner trail passes and equipment. Adults receive a 50% discount.

About 300 people participate annually. Bob Frye, a past president of the winter trails council, said said those wanting to participate must sign up at least two days in advance, and they can do that by calling the resort where they want to take the lessons. The lessons are provided by professional Nordic ski instructors.

Participating resorts include Aspen Grove X-C Center, Boyne Highlands X-C Center, Boyne Mountains' Nordic Center, Champion Hill, Corsair Ski Trails, Crystal Mountain Resort, Garland Resort, the Homestead Resort and Stokely Creek.
