We will have lots of public cross-country ski lesson opportunities this winter at Elm Creek as well as at other Three Rivers Park District parks, including at Hyland, Carver, French, Baker, and Cleary parks (check out our webiste at threeriversparks.org). If you'd prefer a private lesson call us at 763-694-7718. Now let's hope the weather reports are correct and we get snow this weekend!
