Cross Country Skiing
Last winter, Emily was given a lesson in ice skating and really didn’t do the best. In other words, she fell! So this year, she took a shot at cross country skiing.
She headed over to Como Park Ski Center to give it a try and met up with Jeffrey Popowski, a cross country ski instructor.
Como offers a variety of individual and group lessons in snowboarding, downhill, and cross country skiing. This Saturday, January 5th is the start of their group lessons at 5 different times throughout the day (9:00am, 10:45am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, & 4:15pm). All lessons are an hour long. We have different levels for all ages starting at 4 years old for downhill ski and 8 years old for snowboard. Lessons are also held on Tues and Wed evenings at 6:00pm & 7:15pm. It's only $95.00 for the 5 week program. If they need to rent equipment it's $45.00 for skis and $75.00 for snowboard for the 5 weeks. There is still availability in most classes, but may fill up soon!
Como Park Ski Center also has a GREAT deal on Fridays! It's called "Friday Family Fun Night!" It's only $10 whether you want to ski & snowboard (tow ticket included), or cross country.
