SHERBURNE- Join Friends of Rogers from 9:30-11 a.m. or 11:30-1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, and ‘Learn to Ski’ at Rogers Center. Participants who would like to learn how to ski, will be taught the basics of cross-country skiing, a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and get great exercise.
The oldest form of skiing, cross-country was developed to aid travel over snow. While some still rely on skis for transportation, today’s sport is mostly for recreation and exercise. Using natural body movements, cross-country skiing is easy to learn. Although the same material will be covered, participants are welcome to register for both sessions. Equipment rental is included in the program fee.
“We are very excited to offer this new program,” said Simon Solomon, Friends of Rogers executive director. “Cross-country skiing allows participants the chance to see familiar landscapes from new perspectives.”
