    Had a great time for my first XC ski! Thanks everyone for the patience, and especially Claude for his efforts in organising and teaching.

    Claude was a great leader; I learned a new place to ski; everyone was fun to ski with!

    I've only taken one xc ski lesson (thoroughly enjoyed it!) Am I too novice for this trip?

      Nobody is too novice for this trip. One lesson is more experience than most have on easy trips.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
