Nordic Ski and Winter Fun Club (ages 4-6)

Madnorski is teaming up with the Madison Children’s Museum and CXC Skiing again this winter to provide outdoor family ski and winter fun opportunities for our communities’ youngest athletes.

Children between the ages of 4-6, along with one adult caregiver, can sign up for the Nordic Ski and Winter Fun Club held in January which will include Nordic Rocks ski rental for kids and fun, engaging, on-snow parent-child instruction. Parents are encouraged to bring their own classic skis if they have them, and if not, they can rent a pair of Nordic rocks skis and poles for the 4 week session for $20 or $5 per day. Nordic Rocks skis fit over existing winter boots, so adults and children should just dress like they’re going out to play in the snow.

Because of COVID precautions and the possible lack of indoor shelters available, children will be REQUIRED to have an adult caregiver to help with getting skis on and off, to help with lost mittens, and to gauge when their child needs to go into the car to get warmed up.  

Sessions will take place on Wednesday afternoons at Elver Park meeting behind the shelter. 

All adults who intend to ski are required to have a City of Madison Ski Pass for the season.
