2013 Cross-Country Skiing Clinics

    The Fayette County Conservation Board will be once again holding several cross-country ski clinics.

    Participants will learn about basic 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: First and Last Name, Phone Number and Shoe Size (please indicate men's, women's, or children's).

    Please call the Gilbertson Nature Center for more information or to pre-register at 536-426-5740 or e-mail for the Cross-country Ski Clinics.
