Cross Country Ski
Hopkinton Parks and Recreation is once again offering cross-country skiing to our community.  Cross-country skiing is a great outdoor experience for all ages.

Our youth program will meet for six weeks on Wednesdays, beginning January  11th, 2023 at Hopkinton High School on fields 7 and 8, next to the turf fields.

Over the six weeks, our program instructors will teach you the basic skills of cross-country skiing. Early session classes will focus on learning basic skills like push-off, gliding, turning, and stopping on flat and hilly terrain. Throughout the program the instructors will build upon the basic skills and introduce more advanced skills such as double polling and skiing up and down hill among others.  

This program will get you outside, exercising and enjoying the beauty of winter in New England.

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

Parks and Recreation does not provide equipment. 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!
