Try-Athlon

 
 

This is your opportunity to try three Winter Olympic sports - luge, ice speedskating, and cross country skiing. This event is family friendly and geared toward those who may have never done at least one of these sports. Of course, serious competitors are welcome as well. We recognize that many people may have very little experience in some of these sports. We will teach you everything you need to know in continuous 20-minute clinics at each venue.
