Embrace winter by celebrating cross-country skiing at the Minnesota Nordic Ski Opener on Saturday, December 11! Skiers of all abilities and ages are invited to kick off winter with free skiing, free ski rental equipment and free mini lessons. Participate in the Ski Tour with routes for the whole family, and check out the Nordic Market with representatives from 50 Nordic ski suppliers, resorts, retails and clubs (including the MN Rovers!). The event is hosted by Three Rivers Park District and located at Elm Creek Park Reserve in Maple Grove.
We’re looking for volunteers to staff the MN Rovers booth and help spread the word about how much fun it is to play outside with us. There are five one-hour shifts available from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Here’s the volunteer sign-up roster.
You may also want to consider volunteering for Three Rivers as a greeter, in the rental building, as a “ski buddy” to help people as they try skiing for the first time, or other duties. To learn more or sign up with Three Rivers, call 763-559-6706 or email Becca Conser at [email protected].
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
