This Saturday entry-level program is designed to get kids interested in cross-country skiing and participate in races if desired. Our goal is to develop proper technique at a young age through drills, games, and longer distance skis. If interested, athletes will also have the option to attend local and regional races through Rocky Mountain Nordic throughout the season. This program is a great progression into the full weekend or academy team as an athlete’s skill and desire builds.
Both classic and skate technique will be emphasized and required as a part of practice in order to help the athlete become a better all-around athlete.
Dates and Times:
Saturdays - Dec. 2, 2017 thru March 24, 2018 10am-Noon, location TBD

Location: In order to make this a community wide program, we hope to host practice at numerous locations throughout Grand County, whether that be at the resort base early in the season, or Devil’s Thumb, Snow Mountain Ranch, Granby Ranch, etc. Therefore season passes to each Nordic center will not be included in the program fees, however, we are hoping to work out deals with each center in order to make obtaining passes a non-financial issue.
