Nordic skiing on a golf course? Winter fun at the U of M!

During the warmer months, the University of Minnesota's Les Bolstad Golf Course is a great place for U of M students, faculty, staff, and general public to test their skills on the links. But did you know that during the winter months Les Bolstad is crafted into a extensive nordic ski track?

This year, the University of Minnesota's Center of Outdoor Adventure and Nordic Ski Center have designed three trails that run throughout the entire golf course. For $3.00, students can ski at will throughout the winter months. Don't have skis? No problem! The Center for Outdoor Adventure located on the lower level of the University Recreation Center has all the the equipment you need to get out on the trails!

Don't get stuck inside during the winter months. There is plenty of fantastic, low-cost outdoor activities to get participate in throughout the University of Minnesota and the Twin Cities. Feel free to stop by the Center for Outdoor Adventure to learn about their outdoor winter trips and clinics!
