Open Winter Youth Programs:

Nordic Trail Kids (ages 7-11)

Our Nordic Kids program will be offered on two different days of the week this year to keep groups small.  The times will be in the late afternoon – skiing when there is daylight!  Skiers will need to be ready to ski without using the shelter and will meet their pod behind the shelter.  For Trail Kids who want to ski more than one time a week, we also have an option for skiing two times a week!
