Nordic Opener at Three Rivers Elm Creek Park Reserve

Dec 10, Sat {A} Nordic Opener at Three Rivers Elm Creek Park Reserve

Description from the Three Rivers website: "Embrace winter by celebrating cross-country skiing at the Minnesota Nordic Ski Opener! Skiers of all abilities and ages are invited to kick off winter with free skiing, free ski rental equipment and free mini lessons. Participate in the Ski Tour with routes for the whole family, and check out the Nordic Market with representatives from 50 Nordic ski suppliers, resorts, retails and clubs. This is a FREE event. The first 1,500 visitors to the Nordic Ski Market receive a free buff!"

Our North Stars booth will be there, to recruit new members, and we'll need your help staffing the booth.  To volunteer, please call David or Dana Siskind at 612-929-0205.


At the 2021 Nordic Ski Opener, several North Stars volunteered as ski buddies, skiing around the trails with new skiers to give them advice and encouragement. All reported that it was a very fun and rewarding experience. You have an opportunity to join in the fun this year!
