Cross Country Ski
Learn to Cross-Country Ski
Hopkinton Parks and Recreation is excited to offer this NEW winter sport to our community. Cross-country skiing is a great outdoor experience for all ages.

Our program instructors will teach you the basic skills of Cross-country skiing. Learning skills like push-off, gliding, turning, and stopping on flat and hilly terrain, will get you outside, exercising and enjoying the beauty of winter.

Our youth program will meet for four weeks on Wednesdays, beginning January 6th, 2021 at Hopkinton High School on fields 7 and 8, next to the turf fields.

Our High School/Adult program will be offered as a one-day, 2 hour clinic on Saturday, January 9th at Hopkinton High School fields 7 and 8, next to the turf fields.

Details on drop off and pick up times along with Covid procedures will be provided prior to the start of the program.

Parks and Recreation will not be providing equipment this year. There are many ski stores in the surrounding area. Here are a few we suggest to buy/rent cross-country skis. Please be aware that rental options are limited this year due to increased popularity of the sport so do not delay in securing your skis!
