Why hate winter when you can ski?
That's the idea behind the Buffalo Nordic Ski Club annual open house, which will take place from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Wick Center at Daemen College, 4380 Main St., Amherst.
All interested in cross-country skiing this winter are welcome to attend. No reservations are needed and admission is free.
The open house will include a video covering cross-country for beginning to advanced skiers, waxing clinics, clothing and equipment displays from area ski shops, door prizes and more.
The Buffalo Nordic Ski Club offers free lessons to all club members. Other benefits of membership include weekly ski tours, monthly meetings, as well as weekend trips to places including Allegany State Park, the Adirondacks and Craftsbury, Vt., said James Klein, open house coordinator.
