This event was cancelled on Mon 2/12/2024, by Dan Dunne for the following reason: It is with great sadness that we have decided to cancel tomorrow's Outdoor Explorer Series: Intro to Cross Country Skiing class due to the lack of snow to practice on. We hope to rerun this course again in the future when more snow is available. We will refund your payment in the next 5-7 business days. Sorry to have to cancel, thank you for your interest, and we hope to see you in future classes :)
