@dmcmorrow Hello Diane, thanks for reaching out!
Cross country skiing and/or snowshoeing is a great way to get some exercise and experience the beauty of winter in a new way. I have some really fond memories of getting out in the winter in Massachusetts when I lived there!
While REI does not typically host cross country skiing or snowshoeing lessons at remote locations, we have reached out to our local team to see what ideas they can send your way. They'll respond here in the community soon.
Thanks for working hard to help people get outside!
