DXC SkiSparks 2023

DXC SkiSparks mission is to provide and introduce ski activities and inspire a love of cross-country skiing to keep our children healthy and active. DXC SkiSparks is open to all children age 4 to 14. Meetings are held Sunday afternoons in January and February at Spirit Mountain Nordic Center (Grand Avenue Chalet).  

Registration for our 2023 program opens October 26! 

DXC will again partner with the Minnesota Youth Ski League to provide a safe, fun play and learn experience for all abilities. Sign-up to volunteer and register through MYSL website: 

The DXC SkiSparks page on the MYSL web site gives details about the club and registering, but here are a couple important points:

  • We will cap registration to maintain a good skier to coach ratio. Register early!

  • We need volunteers - both on snow and off snow, skiers and non-skiers! Please sign up to help as you are able.

  • This year, the DXC SkiSparks Club fees have been separated from Spirit Mountain Nordic pass costs to allow families to decide how to best purchase passes for their families. 

    • Already have a SMRA Nordic Season Pass? Club registration fee of $35 covers all other expenses.

    • Children Age 5 & Under?  Purchase a SMRA Nordic Child Season pass at 2022-2023-nordic-child-season-pass(early) or $22

    • A special SkiSparks session-only pass is available through the MYSL registration for $40. Note that this special pass is valid only during the sessions.  

  •  A limited supply of club rental skis are available, and may be checked out for the entire winter! These can be requested through the MYSL signup process. Spirit Mountain Grand Avenue Chalet also has rentals (for session use only).

  •  Scholarships are available!

Hello fellow skiers! As the DXC Ski Sparks Leader, it is a pleasure to invite you to join us for a fun ski season in partnership with the MYSL program! I first learned to ski just after finishing college while living in the peaceful northwoods. I had to find something to do, and cross-country skiing was the obvious choice, as I learned this is what we do here. It turns out, that is for good reason! Since learning to cross-country ski as an adult, I have enjoyed the snowy months of the year with such joy, both individually and with my family. I am looking forward to meeting you and your kids as we learn, create memories, and share the love of skiing together.

-Molly Shoberg, DXC SkiSparks Leader
