Buena Vista County Conservation Board has available for rent cross-country ski equipment. Cross-country skiing is one of the best cardiovascular workouts and exercise that you can do for yourself. If you would like to try something new, we have the following dates for ski clinics scheduled.
The naturalist will be there during the clinic to teach different cross-country ski techniques. Ten people maximum per clinic and all participants must be pre-registered by calling 712-749-2563. There will be a $5.00 charge per participant per clinic.
The clinics will take place from 1-3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 27 at Storm Lake; Thursday, Dec. 28 at Buena Vista County Park west of Linn Grove; Sunday, Jan. 6 at Buena Vista County Park west of Linn Grove; Sunday, Jan. 21 at Buena Vista County Park west of Linn Grove; Jan. 23 at Storm Lake.
The public may also individually rent cross-country ski equipment by calling the Buena Vista County naturalist at 712-749-2563. The cost is $5 per day per pair or $10 per pair for the weekend with a deposit required to rent the skis. There are limited numbers and sizes so be sure to call ahead to reserve the equipment ahead of time.
