Description

The purpose of these three-week ski clinics is to get more youth into the sport of nordic skiing. The clinics are designed for beginners and will focus on teaching the fundamental skills of classic ski or skate ski technique. The clinics will include technique drills, relays, and games on skis – with the main focus on developing skills, having fun, and falling in love with a lifetime sport! Following the clinics, participants can choose to continue with Trail Kids programming by signing up for our Winter Nordic Ski Programs.
