Whitefield cross country ski club offers after-school program

Posted:  Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 8:45am

Midcoast Conservancy is offering an afternoon ski program in Whitefield for kids ages 8-15. The Whitefield Cross Country Ski Club will meet Monday through Friday, Feb. 12-16 and Feb. 26-March 2 from 3-5 pm.

Join Midcoast Conservancy and Coach Haskell Padgett for 10 fun-filled afternoons of cross country skiing. Each session will begin with a lesson on skiing or snowshoeing before putting those skills to the test out on the trail.  This is the perfect setting for kids who have never skied before, or are still working to polish their skills. Coaches use creative, non-competitive techniques to keep kids engaged and having fun. 

Program will meet at 102 Cookson Lane in Whitefield. Skis, boots and poles will be provided for all participants. Cost is $20 but scholarships are available: no one will be turned away. Contact Andy Bezon to inquire at (207) 389-5156 or andyb@midcoastconservnacy.org.
