The second, and final, Youth Ski Lease fitting day is Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 4-7:30 p.m. at the CLC YMCA on Main Street in Damariscotta.

In an effort to get kids and families outside having fun in the snow, Midcoast Conservancy is partnering with the Outdoor Sports Institute to provide affordable cross country ski equipment to local kids ages kindergarten through eighth grade. Families can lease high quality skis, boots, and poles through Midcoast Conservancy for the entire winter. Each child will get sized for the gear and then take it home for the season so they can ski on great equipment wherever, whenever they want.

The child who will use the skis must be present. The ski lease package is $65 per participant. Any questions about the ski lease program can be directed to Andy, andyb@midcoastconservany.org; details are online at midcoastconservancy.org/events.
