Typical ski club session:
We’re here to cross county (nordic) ski and have fun! We ski and play games on the snow. This is a very friendly, family oriented program focused on children ages 4 to 14 years old that is built around kids having fun while learning skills and techniques needed to become better cross country skiers.
We meet each scheduled Sunday at 1:45 p.m. to have the kids get their skis on and be ready at 2:00 p.m. where we divide into six groups based on age, comfort and skill level. Younger groups with coaches ski near the trailhead and take advantage of small, snow-covered inclines to get used to being on skis. Older kids venture off about the park with a coach. Volunteer coaches have curriculum loaded with ideas and strategies for teaching young skiers. Half-way through each session, we meet back at the shelter for a snack, warm-up and a restroom break. Then, back on the ski trails until 4:00 p.m.
