LVHS High Plains Team ski clinic fundraiser at Beaver Creek on Saturday

(South Pass, Wyo.) – The Lander Valley High School High Plains Team will be conducting ski clinics for the community this Saturday, January 26 at Beaver Creek. Take a lesson, or if you are new to the trails at Beaver Creek and have always wanted to see what they are like—come for a guided tour!

Participants are invited to come and improve your skate stride, classic glide or try out skis for the first time. This clinic is available to all ages and abilities in either classic or skate techniques.

The clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Beaver Creek ski area, a half hour drive from Lander. Plan to arrive at the parking lot around 9:30 to allow time to walk to the trails and sign in. Be prepared for windy, winter conditions. Dress in warm, synthetic layers (avoid cotton). Use sunscreen if it’s sunny!

Donations will be accepted to help Lander High School skiers attend the USSA Cross Country Junior National Championships in Fairbanks, Alaska, this March. These skiers train all year long in hopes for qualifying for the High Plains District team and a chance to compete on a national level. Show them your support and learn some new skills.

An earlier clinic was cancelled due to inclement weather. A second clinic is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 16

The registration at the kiosk begins at 9:45 a.m. From the parking lot, walk under the bridge, along the fence, and up a short hill. The kiosk is just down the trail to the left.
