April 1, 2014, And this is no April fool’s joke! You’re never too old to give cross country skiing a try….Cross Country skiing is a popular outdoor activity past time. Recently the Caribou Wellness & Recreation Center partnered with Wendy Bossie to help display this part of our history. While completing a follow up article to the display it was brought to our attention that area resident who have not had the opportunity to cross country ski in some time would love to give it a try again. Now that you know the reasoning behind this offering, let’s talk about the details….Caribou County Club is not only home to some great golf holes, but it is also home to some outstanding Nordic Ski Trails as well. These trails boast a wilderness experience right in our backyard; rabbits and song birds make these trails a unique Aroostook County experience. Trip will depart from the Caribou Wellness & Recreation Center, where participants will be outfitted with cross country skis, boots, and poles. Proper attire is a must. Trip will include a hot bowl of chowder and finger sandwiches on the trail. Rekindle your childhood winter memories around a fire in the woods. $20.00 fee includes equipment, transportation and lunch. Inclement weather date is Wednesday, April 2, 2014.
