KCKCC Plans Cross Country Ski Event

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Kansas City Kansas Community College is planning Cross Country Ski events this winter. This will be the second consecutive year a ski event will be held on the college campus.

The following events are planned for this winter:
  • A clinic. This will be held inside to talk about Cross Country Skiing including the equipment needed, waxing, clothes, boots, technique, where to ski, etc.
  • A lesson. This will be for beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers. Everyone is welcomed, even if you do not own a pair of skis. If you do not have skis, a pair will be provided to use during the event.
  • A Tour. This tour event will be similar to what was held last winter. A track will be created on the east side of campus.
Anyone is welcome to participate in the Cross Country Ski events. Once it snows, a date will be set for the event. This could mean only 12 to 24 hour notice, so that there can be some skiing before the snow begins to melt.

Those who are interested can contact Ron Wollenhaupt, KCKCC Health & Wellness, at Information is also available by contacting Pam Hall at
