We work very closely with our local community to get more kids on skis and snowshoes. Our long-term goal is guarantee that every child in the community can learn to ski at very low or no cost. Many of our youth skier programs are grant funded and volunteer led.
Nordic Wolves & Pups
Nordic Wolves was created to give kids a place to learn more about cross-country skiing and to have big fun in the process. It’s for kids who are either: A) too young to be on the elementary school Ski Team, B) who aren’t quite ready for Ski Team skill-wise, or C) simply for those who don’t want to be that competitive on skis.
Nordic Wolves will meet every Thursday (4pm – 5:30pm) and Sunday (2:30 – 4:30pm), starting Sunday, January 5th, and ending on Sunday, March 2nd, at the Winter Park Chalet.
Kids will be separated into groups based on age and ability–Nordic Pups are younger and Nordic Wolves are older and a little more advanced–and each session will focus on having fun on skis. Hopefully, in the process, we will learn a few things about cross-country skiing along the way! At the conclusion of the Sunday sessions, kids will have the opportunity to go tubing on the Squirrel Hill snow tubing run at no additional cost.
Cost for the 8 week program (18 sessions) will only be $50 per skier. Kids who need rental gear can rent that from the Ski Shop for $5 per session.
