The CXC Opportunity Centers are up and running this week! 10 Centers across the Midwest and 2 outside of the region:

Madison-Elver Park, Wausau-9 Mile Forest, La Grange-General Store/Nordic Trails, Hayward-New Moon, Minocqua-Winter Park in Wisconsin; Minneapolis-Elm Creek, Duluth, Giant's Ridge in Minnesota; Houghton-Michigan Tech and Marquette in Michigan

Centers are also functioning in Jackson Hole, WY and at Bogus Basin in Boise, ID

Other areas may open this season, with the number expected to double next season. Each Opportunity Center offers stand up and sit ski equipment to provide XC skiing to people with any manner of physical disabilities including spinal cord injuries, amputees, and those with visual impairments. Individuals are not only offered full service facilities at no initial charge, but may make appointments for free lessons from accomplished instructors from each area.
