City Pages' Description
The Midwest's sports gurus don't put their equipment away for the winter, they just dream up new activities. In winter expect both classic and skate cross-country ski workshops, Telemark ski lessons, snowshoe demos and at least one snowshoe trip to the Spirit Hiking Trail, winter camping seminars and overnight trip, as well as their usual rock climbing, kayak tourning and open pool kayak sessions.
