Nordic ski clinic on Grand Mesa
Winter, at 10,000 feet, is doing just fine, thank you.
Even while Grand Junction remains hitched to a late fall, there already is plenty of winter at the Skyway Nordic trail head on Grand Mesa.
Saturday, the Grand Mesa Nordic Council is hosting one-day instructional clinics for children as young as 4 years old up to adults from beginners to advanced.
Morning adult clinics are classic technique with afternoon sessions covering skate-ski technique. Adult sessions are $25 for one, $40 for both.
Saturday’s youth ski camps include one for kids 4-8 years old (11 a.m. to noon) and another for youngsters 9 and older from 11 a.m. until 2:30 or so.
The day includes an introduction to Nordic skiing through instruction and games. Cost is $10 for half day, $15 for full day.
Skiers must supply their own equipment and lunch. Rentals are available at The Board & Buckle, 2822 North Ave., 242-9285.
