Today looks like a perfect day for snow fun. Should be a fine weekend for it, too.
The Beverly Improvement Association, Ald. Ginger Rugai and the Cook County Forest Preserve District encourage everyone to enjoy skiing in the Dan Ryan Woods on Sunday afternoons when there are at least 4 inches of snow on the ground. Skiers meet at 1 p.m. at Beverly Bike and Ski, 9121 S. Western Ave., where you can rent cross country skis, boots, and poles, as well as snowshoes, for $15 for the day and $25 for the weekend.
If you want someone to show you how to cross country ski, call Paul Weise at Beverly Bike and Ski (773-238-5704).
