Exciting Cross Country Skiing Awaits You in mid Michigan
As winter limps its way in, you can plan on plenty of snow this season. What are some of your favorite outdoor activities in the snow?
Maybe you're into downhill skiing, snowboarding or ice skating. I have never downhill skiied before, I used to snowboard when I was young and ice skating is something I haven't done in decades. If you want to try ice skating this year, check this out.
How about cross country skiing? This offers a cool way to enjoy the snow, time with the family and the peace and serenity of being on your skis in the snow with very little distraction.
In elementary school our class would go each year, beginning in 4th grade, to a place called Sarett Nature Center. We were provided cross country skis, poles and boots. The rest was up to us. We had to learn how to cross country ski. Alghough I have fond memories of me and my classmates falling over while we learned, we got better as the years went by.
If your lucky on your eccursion, you might have some small hills to descend. No worries, it's nothing like a black diamond at a ski resort. Easy does it, that's the motto for cross country skiing. Cross country skiing can be competitive but it's also an activity I'll enjoy for the serenity of being with nature.
Load up the car this winter, dress warm and head out to one of the cross country skiing venues in mid Michigan or around the state for some good times.
