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 volunteer coaches are experienced high school, parent, and community skiers, many of whom began in KidSki. All coaches follow the time-tested KidSki lesson plans, which make getting outside in the winter fun! The goal is to make lessons safe, exciting, and to give each participant a sense of improvement and accomplishment each week.
Beginning skiers will learn the classic (stride/traditional) ski technique. Older kids, with previous classic ski experience, may sign up for the Skate technique lessons. Snowflake KidSki is open to ages 4-16. Kids will be placed in groups based upon age and experience.
Snowflake KidSki 2024 will run Sunday, January 7th to February 11th from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. at Snowflake Nordic Ski Center. The Penguin Group, our youngest age group (age 4/pre-K), runs from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Please note, a Penguin skier's parent/caregiver must be on-snow with their skier during class.
Skiers do not need to be Snowflake members to join KidSki, but Snowflake family members do get a discount on both the registration and rental fees. For more information on membership please head over to the Snowflake Nordic Center page at https://www.skiduluth.com/.
RENTAL GEAR: If your skier is in need of rental gear, be sure to register for both the registration fee and the rental fee. Please note, rental gear will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis based on ski fitting time-slots. Filling out and paying for the rental gear form does not guarantee rental gear availability. If we are unable to accommodate your skier's rental needs your rental gear registration will be refunded. Be on the lookout for an email regarding ski fitting times in December.
