  • Beginners’ Ski Instruction Day
  • Beginners’ Day Trip to High Point Cross-Country Ski Center

The dates of the above activities will be determined once the snow season begins.

We schedule very few day trips in advance because of the unpredictability of snow conditions. Most day trips are organized on short notice as snow conditions permit through the e-mail listserv “New Jersey Nordic Skiers and Snowshoers” on groups.io. These day trips are initiated by individual members of that group. They are not approved or sponsored by the New Jersey Nordic Ski Club, and all liability rests with the individuals involved.
