Open to all adults and high school students in the community.

Well, we have to cancel our adult lessons once again on Tuesday, Feb 5.   After the rain, thaw and refreezing, the course conditions just are not suitable for a safe and enjoyable beginner type lesson.    We apologize for this as we are as frustrated as you are.  At this point, there are no plans to hold additional sessions, however, do watch our Facebook page or this site in case we are able to schedule a session or two where we will have sufficient snow and instructors.  

The Wausau Nordic Ski Club in cooperation with Marathon County offers a wonderful opportunity for you to try cross-country skiing and get some instruction for free.   On Tuesday’s in January, the Club provides instructors and the County waives the trail pass and equipment rental for the evening.   Groups are created based on ability and kept small to allow for a quality learning experience.   The lessons are held in the evening on the lighted trails  which is a great way to experience the sport.   Both classic and freestyle lessons are offered.

Lessons will be held on January 8, 15, 22, 29.  The additional session for Feb 5th is cancelled.   See the message at the top of this page.
