Prerequisites
comfortable with classic XC skiing

We're going to the Great Brook Ski Touring Center for a short session of night skate skiing by lantern light on the Lantern Loop. We welcome people who know how to ski (classic), but would like to learn a new technique - skate skiing!

We will offer a ~1.5h lesson at 5pm, but you are free to stay as long as you (and your driver) want, the center will be open till 9pm.

In order to start the lesson at 5pm, we should be there by 4:30 to rent the skis (MITOC does NOT have skate skis), so that means leaving at 3:30 from student center (if you're from the campus)

The daily trail pass costs $15 and the rentals will be $20.
