Registration is now available for the 2013 Trailbusters skiing and snowboarding beginner courses.
Local youth ages 6 to 15 can sign up from now through Jan. 7 to learn how to ski or snowboard. Trailbusters will travel to Steamboat Springs for five Saturdays starting Jan. 19 (excluding Feb. 16).
Participants will need to provide their own equipment, whether it is bringing along skis or renting them.
The ski and snowboard lessons cost $250, with an additional $45 covering the five bus trips to Steamboat. A $31 lift ticket also will need to be purchased for each week.
For more information, call Pennie Bricker, of Craig Parks and Recreation, at 970-826-2029.
Water Aerobics courses available to walk-ins
Craig residents looking to get a different style of exercise are in luck.
Registration is open for water aerobics courses, which began Oct. 22 and run through Jan. 16.
Water Aerobics offer a good combination of exercise benefits, improving fitness and flexibility while also being easier on the joints than other forms of exercise.
Classes will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-8 p.m. at Moffat County High School. The fee to drop-in for a class is $4, or to sign up for the entire session costs $50.
For more information, call 826-2017.
