Adult cross-country ski clinics at HVNC

Fri, 01/21/2022 - 7:45am

Midcoast Conservancy will offer two adult ski clinics this winter at Hidden Valley Nature Center on Sundays, Feb. 6 and 13 from 9 a.m. to noon. Veteran ski coaches will help boost students’ confidence and skill on skis. Cross-country skiing is a great way to enjoy Maine winters, and this clinic is designed to get participants skiing with confidence for the rest of the winter.

Throughout the session, coaches will cover the basics of safe skiing, from technique to trail etiquette. By the end of the morning confidence levels will be boosted and skiers will feel prepared to practice on their own all winter. Coaches will do their best to ensure that the pace of the day meets everyone’s needs and abilities.

The clinic costs $30 for Midcoast Conservancy members and $40 for non-members. Ski rentals are available at Hidden Valley for $15. Anyone signing up as a new member will enjoy the member rate and free rental gear for the day. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, go to
