NIGHT CROSS COUNTRY SKI AT REDTAIL RIDGE

 

Need a new way to make winter go by faster? Why not enjoy it!? Join the Cherokee County Conservation Board (CCCB) at Redtail Ridge for night cross country skiing.

 

Cross country skiing is a low-risk, low-impact aerobic form of exercise, which makes it perfect for all ages. Take this opportunity to enjoy the snowy outdoors and try something new with your loved ones! The CCCB has equipment that you can borrow during this program, free of charge. Be sure to dress comfortably and in layers.

 

Meet Naturalist Laura Jones at 7:00pm on Saturday, January 14th in the Redtail Ridge parking lot off of C44. We'll be skiing a relatively flat 1.5 mile loop by the light of the moon. Bring a headlamp if you have one.

 

If you or someone in your party needs to borrow equipment, free of charge, let Laura know before noon on Wednesday, January 11th. Equipment is limited. The program will be cancelled due to lack of snow or hazardous weather conditions. Ideally, we'll need a minimum of 4" of snow to ski.

 

Redtail Ridge is located 5 miles south of Cherokee on Hwy 59 and ½ mile west on C44. For more information, contact Laura at the Cherokee County Conservation Board by calling 712-225-6709 or e-mailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
