SHERBURNE, N.Y. >> Join Friends of Rogers on Jan. 26 and Feb. 9 from 10 a.m. to noon for “Learn to Ski” at Rogers Cen­ter. Par­tic­i­pants will be taught the basics of cross-coun­try ski­ing, a fun way to en­joy the out­doors and get great ex­er­cise.

The old­est form of ski­ing, cross-coun­try was de­vel­oped to aid travel over snow. While some still rely on skis for trans­porta­tion, to­day’s sport is mostly for recre­ation and ex­er­cise. Us­ing nat­u­ral body move­ments, cross-coun­try ski­ing is easy to learn. Al­though the same ma­te­rial will be cov­ered, par­tic­i­pants are wel­come to regis­ter for both ses­sions. Equip­ment rental is in­cluded in the pro­gram fee.

“We are grate­ful to Ser­vice Phar­macy for part­ner­ing with us again this year,” said Si­mon Solomon, ex­ecu- tive di­rec­tor. “Cross-coun­try ski­ing al­lows par­tic­i­pants the chance to see fa­mil­iar land­scapes from new per­spec­tives.”

Skiers must be at least 13 years of age, and if un­der age 18, must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult. Space is lim­ited, so ad­vance reser­va­tions are re­quired by noon the Fri­day prior to each work­shop; reg­is­tra­tion is $12 for mem­bers and $15 for non-mem­bers.

To regis­ter, call (607) 674-4733 or email ex­[email protected]­
