In our second episode of Park City First Timers, Makena breaks out the cross-country gear and gives skate skiing a whirl.

She begins her adventure by meeting up with our friends at White Pine Nordic Center to get outfitted and to meet her instructor, Logan. They spend time working on the basics – proper skate skiing technique, how to stop, how to get up after falling, etc. After Makena practices with Logan, she ventures out to the White Pine Farm for a loop on her own and to test her skills.
