2023 Program Descriptions
Junior Nordic Programing
Open to all 5+ year old’s. 2 days per week, Tue/Thu. Learn to ski, explore, play games, and have fun! Progression for Devo Race program if interested as well as high schoolers looking for instruction and winter fitness. Tuesday’s will be Skate with Thursday’s being Classic technique. For many of the kids, particularly the younger ones, we can use the same skis as opposed to having a separate pair of skate and classic skis. Scholarships are available to help offset costs on a case-by-case basis. We are trying out a new tiered fee structure for the Adventure XC program. 3 fee options for you to choose from:
- $355 – same as last year
- $500 – true cost of programming
- $600 – true costs + investment for development
Programming begins with dryland training at Ponderosa State Park November 1st.
We transition to skiing once grooming begins at our local Nordic centers.
