The program is designed to give children and adults new to snow sports the chance to try snowshoeing and cross-country skiing for free, and to discover the great fitness and social benefits of these easy-to-learn winter sports. The Homestead offers a two-hour group lesson for each sport. The group will travel into the beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on the Bay View Trail that adjoins The Homestead property.
The program includes a national park pass, equipment overview, instructions on how to dress warmly and fundamentals on cross-country skiing and/or snowshoeing. Cross-country lessons begin at 10:00 am and snowshoeing lessons at 1:30 pm. For more information visit WinterTrails or call The Homestead at 231-334-5000. The program is free.
