Learn To Ski or Snowshoe!
Learn to cross country ski or snowshoe at Mirror Lake State Park, Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011 at 2pm. There will be lessons followed by a trail outing. Join the Mirror Lake State Park Friends Group for a fun winter afternoon of instruction and recreation! Of course, you don’t have to go home because from 6pm to 8pm the fun continues with the annual Candlelight ski & shoeshoe festivities. Two trails will be lit by torches. One trail is an easy 0.8-mile trail that will be available for everyone to use. The other trail is an easy 1-mile trail for classical skiing. The Friends will have a couple of roaring bonfires to warm up by, and will also have food, drinks and goodies for sale. Meet at the Beach Picnic area for a wonderful evening! 6-8 p.m.
