I saw this note from Trail Monster Jeff Walker about a Skate Ski clinic at Pineland Farms next Monday:

Morgan Laidlaw, the coach of Maine Coast Nordic and the Bill Koch League skiers, is offering a beginner skate skiing clinic at Pineland on Martin Luther King Junior Day. Take advantage of this opportunity!

Time: 9AM, Monday 19 January (MLK day)
Location: Pineland – meet in the stadium (the large, flat, groomed area by the touring/visitor’s center).
Cost: $10/person (what a deal!)
Note: A trail pass must be purchased from the Visitor’s Center or the Nordic Center (downstairs from the Visitor’s center) to ski on the trails. Also, the Nordic Center rents skate skis, boots and poles.

This is a great deal and an excellent opportunity to learn an effective cross training activity for the Winter if you can make it. If you have any questions about the event then leave them in the comments below and I will forward them on to Jeff for you.

And if you are concerned about whether there will be enough snow or not, fellow Trail Monster Jamie Anderson has this quick video on how you can make some more:
