This Friday, Jan. 2, between 4 and 7 p.m., the Pagosa Nordic Club will host the season’s first free Moonrise/Sunset X-C Ski Social. The social will be held at Yamaguchi Park, located downtown at 684 S. 5th St., across from the high school football field.

A 1 km loop will be groomed around the park and along the San Juan River for skate skiing with set tracks for classic cross-country skiing. A campfire will be set up at the terrazzo structure with some hot soup and chili, hot cocoa and s’mores to enjoy. It will be potluck style; you can bring something to share, though it is not required. You do not to have to be on skis, so come on out and socialize with us around the campfire. This is a great family activity for X-C skiers of all ages. All local ski shops rent cross-country skis.
