Medawisla Lodge and Cabins,
This 3-night program will introduce you to the wonderful world of cross-country skiing. Never again will you wile away winter indoors at the kitchen table. Expert guides will start you off at the very beginning, and before long you will be skiing along in the fresh winter air wondering why you never tried this before. First you'll get fitted for your equipment, learn to balance on the skis, and practice kicking and gliding. The next two days will be spent on the trails at Medawisla Wilderness Lodge and Cabins, which are perfect for beginners to test and improve their skills. Participants will have a memorable, fun-filled weekend to kick off the winter season. Activity level: easy to moderate
