Wax Clinic, Kids Lessons, Enchanted Forest, this week 1/29-2/1!!!
1) Thursday: FREE Ski Tuning clinic with SWNSC president Clay Moseley at (and courtesy of) Fusion Multisport, this Thu (tomorrow!) Jan 29th, 6pm. They are across the street from CB Fox in Los Alamos.
2) Friday/Saturday: Ski free rest of the dat at Enchanted Forest XC Ski Area by helping them out with timing UNM Ski team's homemeet there Friday and/or Sat mornings (and it is so fun to watch and cheer, there will be quite a few world class skiers!). And don't worry, the races are just in the morning, there will be plenty racer-free time to ski yourself.
3) Sunday: FREE kids' xc ski play-lesson at Canada Bonita trailhead this Sunday Feb 1st and 10am. Details below.
**Storm forecast for Fri-Sat, so this is weather contingent. Watch our facebook page (its a public url, you do not need to log in) for updates Fri and Sat.**
FREE Kids' xc ski play lesson is set for this Sunday Feb 1st at 10am. We will meet at the Canada Bonita trailhead (just past the big rocks blocking Camp May road at the far end of Pajarito Downhill Area's parking lot). The plan is to play some games on Camp May road for about an hour to build comfort with ski handling and confidence. After that, we may take older and more experienced kids who are willing, to do some skiing on the Canada Bonita trail. All ages and ski abilities are welcome but plan to stay with your child if they are younger than 5. You will need to have your own equipment and it is very helpful if adults also wear their skis, more fun for the kids and very good practice for the parents :). Here is a list of rental places, make sure to call ahead (today!) with foot sizes, height and weight to make sure they have what you need.
