Free Community Cross Country Ski Clinic Offered January 28th
Area skiers will have the opportunity to get their cross country ski technique tuned up on Saturday, January 28th at the Mt Ashwabay Trails south of Bayfield at 10-11:30am. With less than a month until the Book Across the Bay, 4-H CANSKI (Chequamegon Area Nordic Ski Club) will provide a ski technique clinic free to the community. Participants can work on either skate or classic technique, with pointers on going farther and faster with less effort and personalized coaching tips. This clinic is for skiers of all ages – those that will ski The Book Across the Bay, as well as, those that simply want to improve their confidence on skis (beginner through expert). Meet at the trail-head at 9:50am. There is no charge for the clinic, but a trail pass is requested to help offset grooming costs if you choose to ski on the beautiful Ashwabay trails after the clinic. Bring your own skis or rent at Ashwabay. For more information contact Doug Liphart at the Ashland County UW-Extension office 715-682-7017.
