Midcoast Conservancy offers youth cross-country ski clinic

Thu, 11/19/2020 - 7:15am

Midcoast Conservancy will be offering its winter youth cross-country ski clinic starting Saturday, Jan. 9 through Saturday, Feb. 13, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. The six-session ski clinic for kids ages 5-14 is the perfect setting for skiers of different levels to gain skills and confidence while enjoying HVNC’s trails. Instructors use creative, non-competitive methods to ensure that skiers are learning while having fun each week. Hidden Valley has over 25 miles of trails that are groomed in winter, and has five cabins and yurts that are open year round for camping.

COVID-19 considerations will be observed. This program will be held 100% outdoors. Participants will be socially distanced and required to wear masks when unable to socially distance, and will be assigned to small groups and remain in those same small groups each week. The large group circle/ warm-up which normally takes place as a part of this program will be replaced by individual group warm-ups. In the event that this program is cancelled due to an uptick in COVID-19 cases or community transmission in Lincoln County, all families and participants will receive a full refund.

There are separate costs for members and non-members. Space is limited so families are encouraged to register today using the online form found on the Midcoast Conservancy website at https://www.midcoastconservancy.org/events/youth-cross-country-ski-clinic-2/
