Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC) is excited to be a partner in the first ever Minnesota Nordic Ski Opener! Move over Minnesota Fishing Opener and Hunting Opener; it’s time to celebrate Minnesota cross-country skiing. CXC will be represented at the Opener.

Three Rivers Park District is proud to host the Minnesota Nordic Ski Opener on Saturday, December 9, 2017, at Elm Creek Park Reserve which has a 2.5K manufactured snow loop.

The primary goal of this event is to promote cross-country skiing at all levels – especially new skiers! Another goal of this event is to encourage Minnesotans to get out skiing early being blessed with three manufactured snow areas in the metro area (Elm Creek, Hyland Lake, and Wirth Park) and another in Mora, MN.

The Nordic Ski Opener is free to the public. It is a great event for the entire family with:

* Free skiing
* Free lessons
* Free ski rentals
* Rennet ski tours for all levels
* Morning test track for Collegiate, HS & advanced skiers
* Kids Ski Carnival
* Ski demos (All Major Brands)
* Reps from Ski Resorts and Events
* Many fun activities
* Free buffs for the first 1000 attendees!

We look forward to seeing you at Elm Creek Park Reserve on December 9, 2017, in Maple Grove, MN.
