Programs for Kids
Marshall Holiday Ski Camp
(2021 Holiday Ski Camp is Cancelled this year)
Marshall Holiday Ski Camp (Dave Johnson and Marshall Ski Team)
“The camp is supervised by the Marshall Nordic Ski Team Coaching Staff. Instruction is provided by the members of Marshall Nordic Ski Team and Alumni. On the first day, students are placed in small groups based on age and ability. The students are assigned instructors who will work with them the entire camp. The instruction is thorough and nurturing – taking skiing students to the ‘next level’ no matter where they start out. Rental equipment, sledding, bonfires with marshmallows, crafts, hot chocolate and snacks are all included in the fun”

Nordic North Stars Youth Programs
Nordic North Stars Youth Programs (Kara Salmela and Siiri Morse)

Snowflake KidSki (Local volunteers)
“Continuing a long-established model, KidSki is intended to get kids on skis, and to develop the basic skills which make nordic skiing fun. Our Coaches are experienced high school skiers, many of whom began in KidSki, who will be following the time-tested KidSki lesson plan. The goal is to make lessons safe, fun, and to give each participant a sense of improvement and accomplishment each week. Beginning skiers will learn the Classic (stride) ski technique. Older kids, with previous Classic Ski experience, may request Beginning Skate technique lessons. Snowflake KidSki is open to ages 4-16. Kids will be placed in groups of 7-9, based upon age and experience. Each group will have 2-3 coaches. We will also offer Adult Classic and Skate classes for parents who would like to learn basic skills while their child is at KidSki.”

DXC is currently still building our Adult Ski Programming for the winter, so please stay tuned in case XC ski lessons start with us. However, Nikolai Anikin is a very accomplished local skier who offers lessons. You can contact him at Nikolai248@yahoo.com
