Ski/Snowboard/Telemark Clinic Offered Free For Senior Group

In collaboration with the Area on Aging of Luzerne and Wyoming Counties and Jack Frost Mountain senior ski group, a free senior ski/ snowboard/telemark clinic will be offered on Wednesdays through the end of the ski season.

Registration begins at 9:30 a. m. at the learning center (ski school) office. Clinic will begin at 10 a. m. and last at least an hour. All seniors, men and women older than 55, are welcome to attend.

A special luncheon will be served on February 3, following the clinic. Marianne Infantino, a board member of AAA and an avid skier, will speak about how she started the senior ski club some 25 years ago and representatives of AAA will talk about eating healthy and staying in shape for ski season. Joe Yoziak and Bill Runner will talk a bit about ski safety and improvement.

Yoziak will work with the expert skiers; Eric Uelan and Richard Mailman with advanced skiers. Suzanne Lawser and Runner will work with the novice/intermediate skiers. Telemark instruction will be conducted by John Barnitz and snowboarding by Tom Rogish. While the clinic is free, skiers must have a lift ticket and equipment.

Come out and enjoy the wonderful winter weather… mid-week conditions are the best. No crowds and plenty of Pocono Powder! For additional information call the Jack Frost Learning Center at 570 443-8425.
