Kids Cross Country Ski Classes - 2022
Kids cross country ski classes are intended to inspire a love of cross-country skiing. It is open to both first-time and more experienced skiers. We will provide some formal skills instruction, but will spend the majority of our time playing games on skis.
The program will run Feb. 2, 9, 16, and 23 at Green Canyon, from 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm. We will meet right at the Green Canyon trailhead. Classes will be held in the picnic area about 300 yards up the canyon.
The program is for kids 7 - 17 yrs old, and it is free of charge (but donations to NU are appreciated!).
Sign-ups are open through January 28.
Important: Please make sure your kids use the bathroom BEFORE the meeting time (there are two pit toilets in the parking lot). Volunteers will NOT escort kids to the restroom once we begin.
Please make sure your kids have:
+ Proper clothing. Multiple layers are better than one heavy coat. Good hats and gloves are essential!
+ Cross-country skis, boots and poles. Classic gear is best for beginners, more experienced skiers can bring skate gear if they prefer.
+ For gear rentals, try: The Sportsman (435 752-0211), USU Outdoor Program (435 797-3264), or Al's Sports (435 752-5151). You can also try KSL or Facebook Marketplace for used gear, or query your Facebook friends to borrow...
