The Youth XC Ski Program is for Grades 1-5.  10 week-long program with the opportunity to participate in the BKL Youth Ski Festival in February.  We create a fun learning atmosphere through on & off-snow games that teach children the basics of classic and skate skiing, balance development through play, movement on skis, and a sense of accomplishment & appreciation of a lifelong sport of Nordic Skiing.    We provide an opportunity for children to learn the benefits of long-term commitment, outdoor preparedness, and a solid love of the outdoors!

SKI EQUIPMENT:   Proper xc skiing equipment is important & renting is the best way for your child to learn to ski!  More details will be posted before November regarding ski equipment. 

Please contact Julia Peterson with any questions regarding equipment.
