WeSki Wrap Up
Hard to believe it, but another season of WeSki is behind us and great skiing is still ahead of us! So glad to see so many WeSki "Grads" taking advantage of the VASA Fesitval of Races this weekend! Please let us know you comments about "How to make it better for next year"!
WeSki Session #3
With the annual Women's Tour BEFORE WeSki and the Super Bowl AFTER, we are threading the needle, so to speak, to take advantage of the great snow and the window of time in this busy day...Please plan to gather in the Lodge on 2/8 for check in before lessons. We'll be back in the Hall for our soup aferwards....on the menu is Chicken Tortellini and Black Bean along with bread, cookies, cocoa and marshmallows....The Grand Finale of a great WeSki Season!!!
WeSki Session #2
Mother Nature is being a bit fiesty lately so we will have to postpone Session # 2, Sun., 1/22 to the following week, Sun., 1/29...this means that WeSki will run into February for Session #3 on the next Sunday, 2/5.....Please make every effort to accomodate this needed change of plans into your busy lives.....we just can't ski when there's no skiable snow and icy trails.
Get Ready for Sunday, Jan. 15th!! 3:00-5:00 PM at Timber Ridge! Lessons first, then a light meal before heading home....let's hope for great skiing conditions; we KNOW the lessons will be great and so will the fun!!! See you there if you have registered to be a part of this instructional program!
"WeSki" is a program jointly sponsored by the Vasa Ski Club (VSC) in the Grand Traverse area of the northern lower peninsula of Michigan. It was developed in response to the need in our area to provide an affordable entry-level, small group instructional experience in the sport of cross-country (XC) skiing that’s age and ability appropriate. Three weekly 1-hour sessions are offered in January. A tasty,light and nutritious meal follows each lesson to facilitate whole-family participation and socialization.
Goals are to lay the foundation for a life-long physical activity that can be enjoyed in the winter months, individually, in a group or as a family, promoting better physical health, social interaction, family bonding, use of local XC trail systems, and participation in local and national XC ski events.
Since it was such a popular session last year, the RACING CLINIC will be held once again on all three Sundays, even though this group is well beyond "entry-level" skiing!
In 2017, WeSKi will be again be offered on a Sunday afternoons.
Dates are January 15, 22 & 29, 3:00 - 5:00 PM at Timber Ridge Resort.

A Coaches' Clinic will take place on Saturday, January 7, 3:00 - 5:00 PM at Timber Ridge. Nationally renowned PSIA Nordic Coach Greg Rhodes will lead the session. It will be amazing! Plan to attend and take advantage of all the coaching wisdom that Greg has to impart!
