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!
***MANDATORY Parent-Skier Informational Meeting online. A link will be shared with all registered program registrants.
SKI EQUIPMENT: Proper xc skiing equipment is important & renting is the best way for your child to learn to ski! More details will be provided to each registered program registrant. A limited number of waxless youth skis will be available for rent, but will be communicated by our Youth Program leader.
Please contact Julia Peterson with any questions regarding equipment.
