Classic skiing is the traditional cross-country technique that involves skiing in groomed tracks. From youngster to senior, everybody can pick up this technique quickly and enjoy the beauty of the trails in the Northwoods. Designed for both beginners and those with some skiing experience, topics covered will include the range of equipment available today, how to kick and glide, maintain balance, turn, proper technique for skiing up and down hills, and how to stop.
After applying the wax of the day, instructor Brian Hegge, a veteran of 18 American Birkebeiner ski races, will lead instruction on the beautifully groomed trails at CAVOC just east of Rhinelander to help you learn new skills and enjoy the great outdoors. Upon completion of the class, free skiing with other participants is encouraged. The class runs two consecutive Saturdays.
