Snowflake KidSki


Sundays, January 7th - February 11th


Youth 4-16 years old


2:00-3:30 p.m. each day


Snowflake Nordic Ski Center


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.
