Want to learn a new winter sport?  This introductory cross country skiing course will benefit anyone who would like to learn how to ski and/or develop what they already know about the "Classic" style of cross country skiing.  We will cover the basics of classic skiing mechanics including starting and stopping, turning, and gliding across the snow.
