Volks Ski 400 2012

     The Volks Ski is happening again in Cook County this year.  There are two ways you can participate in this cross-country skiing fun.  There’s the individual Volks Ski and then on February 11th there’s the team challenge.

     Cook County has over 400 kilometers of groomed cross-country ski trails.  The challenge is to attempt to ski as many unique kilometers of these trails as possible.  Last year I set a goal of skiing 200 kilometers and I reached it.  I skiied a bunch of trails I had never skiied before and had alot of fun doing it.  This year’s goal is to ski 100 kilometers of trails that I have never skiied before.

     On February 11th folks will attempt to ski all 400+ kilometers of the cross-country ski trails in Cook County.  Team members can sign up to ski a unique portion of the ski system.  Last year I couldn’t participate because of a hockey tournament and unfortunately I won’t be able to participate again this year because we’ll be out of the county for another hockey tournament.  I’m sure there will be plenty of people to participate in this awesome event but there’s plenty of room for you.

     If you can’t make it on February 11th then come on up any time this winter to ski.  There are so many awesome ski trails in Cook County, but don’t take my word for it, come "ski" for yourself.
