PINKHAM NOTCH, NH-As Mt. Washington Valley landscapes transition into a whiter shade of trail, another pre-season of outdoor winter activity is well underway at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center on Route 16 in Pinkham Notch. The timing is also perfect for the annual Nordic Warm Up Series, which begins on Tuesday, Dec. 11th.
The Nordic Warm Up Series is conducted by Olympian and Great Glen Trails Ski School Director Sue Wemyss and will take place on Dec. 11th, Dec. 18th, and January 1st from 10-11:30 am, with an optional wax clinic being held from 9-10 am. It is open to all, age 16 and over and will cost $60 for the three week program or $25 for a single session, all of which include a trail pass for the day.
“It’s an opportunity to get back into good skiing form and reacquaint your body with cross country skiing muscle movement patterns and activities to improve your technique. With or without snow we will have an opportunity to prepare for the coming season and the Nordic Meister Series, which begins January 8th,” Wemyss observed.
There’s a lot of buzz in the Nordic skiing world right now, following the recent results in World Cup competition in Sweden which found the US Women’s Cross Country team on the podium for the first time ever. In addition to that, Great Glen Trails is participating in the national “No Child Left Inside” campaign, which is designed to get young people out to enjoy Nordic winter activities.
Group size is limited and reservations are suggested for the Nordic Warm Up series. For more information or to sign up email Sue at: firstname.lastname@example.org , or call Great Glen Trails at 603-466-2333, or go online to: www.greatglentrails.com
