Goldener Hirsch Fire Cider Making Workshop                         

October 1, between 2 PM - 4 PM

I’ve been to a couple of the Goldener Hirsch events that were super fun, so I am looking forward to this one. Nicolas Zemp, a clinically certified western and Chinese herbalist, whose knowledge of local plants and herbs is unsurpassed, will lead a series of three different hands-on workshops.

The first in the series arrives just in time for the chilly weather. Nicolas and the team will teach you how to make your own fire cider, a tonic that has been used traditionally to treat all kinds of colds, flus, and other respiratory illnesses. It was even used as a prevention and remedy for the plague. Fire cider tonic is a mixture of pungent medicinal foods and herbs, raw apple cider vinegar, and raw honey.

You will learn the history of fire cider, and the healing benefits of commonly used ingredients and herbs and you’ll get to select your perfect combination of healing herbs and make your own jar to keep you and your family healthy all winter long.  The cost is $85 pp.

Plan Ahead: Nordic Betties Registration Opens

October 1 Sign up begins / Starts in January

Park City Nordic Betties is a women’s Nordic ski club. Meeting once a week, the club provides incredible coaching in small groups. If you have any interest in learning or perfecting your Nordic skiing, look no further. They offer both skate skiing and classic skiing (aka cross country). You are assigned a coach with other women who are at your level of experience and you get to try different locations around town.

Having never skate skied before, I joined one of the beginner groups last season and I can’t say enough good things about this organization. Not only did my skills improve dramatically, but most importantly, I met an amazing group of women and we loved our coach (yes, speaking to you Lynn Ware Peek)!

These classes fill up quickly so don’t wait to sign up.  For more info on days, times, equipment, and costs click the button. Sign Up Here
