Cedar Valley Nordic Skiing - lessons

Cross-country Skiing in Hartman Reserve Nature Center

Want to find an outdoor activity that makes winter seem shorter?  Want to find an outdoor activity that you can enjoy with other like-minded people? Cross-country skiing could be the sport for you!

The Cedar Trails Partnership, through local avid skiers, is sponsoring  free ski lessons on a weekly basis through the winter of 2021. Obviously, conditions won’t allow for skiing every weekend. Please check the Facebook page “Cedar Valley Nordic Skiing” to learn skiing conditions and whether lessons will take place.  

Most events/lessons will occur on Irv Warren Golf Course (Byrnes Park in Waterloo) as they have the best groomed ski trails in the area.  If conditions dictate, we may ski at other locations.

Ski Tours – Not taking place in 2021 due to COVID-19 

Ski Lessons – Reservations are required by emailing xc.ski.wloo.cf@gmail.com.  Four different options are being offered, Beginning Classical (traditional method), Intermediate Classical, Beginning Skating and Intermediate Skating.  See the Facebook page “Cedar Valley Nordic Skiing” and the posting on Ski Lesson Options for more details. Only one of these options will be offered on a given week, hence the need for reservations and scheduling. Coordination of ski lessons will be done via email.

Don’t own your own skis?  Two local businesses offer rental skis, UNI Recreation Services in Cedar Falls and CrawDaddy Outdoors in Waverly. Also note that rental of skating skis is not available locally.

Questions? Email xc.ski.wloo.cf@gmail.com.   We hope that you can join us.
