Snowflake KidSki Program 2022!
We are still planning to conduct the Snowflake Kidski* program during January/February 2022. The program will be restructured to comply with health mandates and common sense. Smaller groups, group dispersal and separation, and very limited access to the chalet are guiding our plans. There will have to be a cap on total participation, and parents will have to accept that they can’t follow their kids’ group or hang-out inside the chalet. To us, it is important that an entire ski season of learning and experience not be lost to our kids, so we will adapt and get it done. And keep it fun. Registration forms and an overview of the KidSki* 2022 program will be available by December 1st.
Snowflake has hosted a Kids’ Ski program for 26 years, and we invite beginning skiers to participate in Snowflake KidSki 2022.
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.
