This Week’s Program:
Come glide over the frozen water of Squam Lake on your cross country skis. If you’ve never stepped in ski boots before, this is a great opportunity to learn some tips and tricks on the basics of cross country skiing. If you’ve been skiing all your life, this will be a fun opportunity to step out on the snow covered ice to explore the lake in a unique way only possible during the winter. You’ll need to bring a pair of skis, ski boots and poles, lots of layers, water, and snacks. We will have a leisurely ski out to one of SLA’s islands, Moon or Bowman, if group energy and/or time permits. If it’s a clear day we can identify the mountains surrounding Squam Lake from the surrounding Squam range, the Sandwich Mountains, and other mountains to the north and south of Squam.
What to Bring: Participants should bring a pair of cross country skis, including boots and poles, clothes/layers for varying conditions including wind, water, and snacks. Click here to view a list of SLA recommended gear for winter hiking.
Audience: Anyone interested in skiing on Squam Lake. All levels of skiers are welcome, including skate skiers and classic skiers.
