Jean has been bugging me for a couple of years now to get myself up to Bohart Ranch for some cross country skiing. It sounds like a blast and I even have my own ancient equipment but (like many others) I'm scared of things I don't understand. Nordic skiing is one of those things. No more excuses. Nordic Fest is here and this is for people like me.

Bohart Ranch offers the community an opportunity to give Nordic skiing a try! FREE lessons, with rentals and trail privileges at 10:00 AM or 1:30 PM. Reservations for lessons are required beginning January 3. Skate and Classic, kids and adults, beginners and intermediates welcomed. Call Bohart Ranch, 586-9070. Limited registration fills quickly!

From I-90 take the Main Street exit to downtown Bozeman. After approximately one mile turn right onto Rouse Avenue North. Rouse Avenue becomes Bridger Canyon Road (Hwy 86). Continue 16.6 miles up Bridger Canyon. Bohart Ranch Cross Country Ski Center is just past mile marker 16 on your left. Visit the Bohart Ranch website HERE for further details. - Michelle
