Thirty Attend Nordic Ski Lessons
by Helen Beattie, Community Journalist
HARDWICK – Thirty skiers attended the second Saturday of the Loan and Lesson at Hazen Union for the nordic ski program hosted by the Hardwick Trails and Recreation Committees. While Emily Willems demonstrated how to efficiently recover from a fall with those new to skiing, Maxfield English was out in the field demonstrating how to glide and increase skiing efficiency. Adrienne Remick, an accomplished competitive skier, joined the instructor team and guided some of the more accomplished participants on to the woodland trails for a more challenging experience.
The Saturday morning program this past weekend was canceled due to subzero temperatures, but will be back up and running this coming Saturday. Equipment loans and lessons allow anyone (often families) the opportunity to try out nordic skiing free of cost. Sounds of laughter, and the number of equipment loans that were extended through the weekend provided ample evidence of the shared enjoyment of the morning.
