Family Snow Fun

Cross-country Skiing Clinics and / or Sledding

The Fayette County Conservation Board will be offering some snow fun at several locations this year. Sledding fun and / or Cross-country Skiing are being offered at different locations.

For locations where there will be sledding fun please bring your own sled and try the slopes. Participants are asked to pre-register for one or both of the sledding times.

For the Cross-country Skiing participants will learn about cross-country ski equipment, helpful recovery techniques and the kick and glide method. Participants can either use the FCCB’s equipment for a $1.00 fee or bring their own equipment. Approximately 35 people can use FCCB equipment per clinic. Participants must pre-register in order to participate in the clinic(s) of their choice. The following information is required about each person participating: which season(s) you would like to participate in, First and Last Name, Contact Phone Number and Shoe Size (please indicate men's, women's, or children's).
