Check out what Andy & Jessie are up to as part of the Winter Trails program.
U.S. Ski Team Cross Country Skiers Jessie Diggins and Andy Newell are interested in kids. So much so that they are taking a break from their training schedule and heading to New York City in mid July to spend some time at the YMCA. As part of a ski industry program called Winter Trails, they will be introducing cross country skiing to the urban youth. This unique program will include Jessie and Andy taking the kids through a selection of their favorite exercises and allow them to act as role models to New York City youth. The YMCA athletes will learn about skiing techniques, equipment, and the qualities of a great team member. There may not be snow in July, but there will be lots of fun!Click here to learn more about Winter Trails.
