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 a Sunday afternoon ski tour and free ski lessons on a weekly basis through the winter of 2020. Obviously, conditions won’t allow for skiing every weekend, but on those weekends that do have good conditions, the event will be labeled as a “GO”.

To determine if a weekly ski event is a “GO” check the Facebook page “Cedar Valley Nordic Skiing.” Each week, information will be posted by 5:00 pm on Friday. The Facebook posted event will indicate if the weekly event is a “GO” and it will specify the place and where to meet.

Each event will be held on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 PM.  Most events 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 Tour – No reservations required – just show up at the right time and place and join the group.

Ski Lessons – Reservations 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.  See the Facebook page for those options.  Also note that rental skating skis are not available locally.

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