Learn about Nordic skiing equipment and near and far ski locales

  • Dec 5, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • REI

Come learn the ins and outs about cross-country (Nordic) skiing at a presentation at REI in the Baileys Crossroads area of northern Virginia.  Nordic skiing is what you see people doing in the streets and on recreational paths when a snowstorm hits the Washington metro area.  It's fun, easy and great exercise in the wintertime.  And there are great spots in the mid-Atlantic to ski when conditions are good.  And even more scenic locations (with reliable snow) further afield up North, out West beckon to the serious skier.


The REI store is on Carlin Springs Road, just down from its intersection with Route 7 (Leesburg Pike). Meeting room is at the back of the store. To ensure a seat for this event, you need to register on the REI site as well as RSVPing here on Meetup.  Go to and scroll down the page to this event listed on December 5th.  Then click to register & fill out the required info.  You do not need to be an REI member to sign up.  Simple as pie!

    I am most likely going to buy a starter package through REI but I thought the presentation would be helpful to attend before I did that.
