    Class Description:

    We have a large selection of skis, boots and poles in various kids sizes. However, students are welcomed and encouraged to bring their own skis to camp for their personal use during the class. After a lesson on wearing skis, moving forward, going up and down hills, and getting up after a wipe out. Students head out of camp on to LEC's cross country ski trails. Students stay in a line as they follow the naturalist through the wintery forest.
