Winter Adventure (Ages 11 to 14)

8 Week Program

This program will be designed for 11-14 years who have completed the Jackrabbit program, still want to continue to improve both their classic and skating skills, but do not want to race. Rather than focus on speed and racing, this course will focus more on distance, endurance, winter camping skills, and be an introduction to becoming a cross country ski coach. The objective is to keep children involved in cross country skiing, introduce them to the possibility of coaching and/or participating in ski marathons or Loppets such as the Canadian Ski Marathon. Children will be expected to have completed Jackrabbit Level 4 (Muskox) and have the physical fitness to ski 15 km in 2 hours.

Both Classic and Skate equipment will be needed.

TIME: Saturdays 10AM to 12PM

STARTS: January 4th & 5th

ENDS: Feb 29th & Mar 1st

*Programs will not be running on the Family Day weekend.

COST: $220 (Price increase by $25 after November 16th )

*Trail passes - valid only during the weekly sessions - are included in Winter Adventure (TBD), Jackrabbit, Bunnies, Chipmunks and Track Attack.
