Ski Walk at Four Lakes

FVBSC members are welcome at annual “Ski Walk” by Nordic Fox Ski Club, 1pm at Four Lakes Ski area in Lisle. Meet 1pm at the ski hill with poles and work out attire. This is great for pre-season conditioning. Must contact NFox leader Art Kardatzke 312-287-9534, arthur.kardatzke@gmail.com.
Since this is on a ski hill, there should be plenty of room to social distance, but please see our COVID guidelines, and bring a mask. Art will demo/answer questions, and you can make this workout as easy or strenuous as you like. Maybe ice cream after? Note-please also email Jeanne B (FVBSC winter/xc ski chair) and include your name in body of email so we have a record of FVBSC attendees. Sorry, I am unable to attend, but may do an easy version another day closer to Geneva area. JB
