New to cross country skiing or snowshoeing?

Clinics are offered in December and January that will help you with the basics of these two fun winter activities. Embrace Erie's winters and enjoy the outdoors in all seasons!

The snowy trails at Asbury Woods are the perfect place to learn how to cross country ski. These clinics will teach participants the basics of cross country skiing before going out and practicing on the trails. Each clinic will cover the same material so join us for the date that works best for you. No prior experience is needed and all equipment is provided. There must be at least 6” of snow for the clinic. Large groups should call to request a private program. Adults and children age 10 and up.
