Awesome First Day on Snow, “Ski for Ks” Program, and Vermont Skier wins World Cup

Fun on Snow!

It is great to be on snow again ~ and so exciting to work with your children to build the fundamental skills of cross-country skiing. The magnitude of 140+ kids on skis is pretty impressive. Thank you to the great group of volunteers, children, family / caregivers, and others that support this program!

Ski for Ks: Encourage your child to track how far they ski this winter!

Encourage your children to keep track of how far they’ve skied this winter, and be eligible for a special patch or pin.  The Ski for Ks program is intended to help kids set and reach attainable goals. The purpose is to motivate them to ski more kilometers than they thought they could! It also encourages families to ski together outside of ski club practices and for kids to set ski dates with their friends.

Nordic Rocks is a collaboration between Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC), New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA), Far West Nordic Ski Education Association (FWNSEA) and Rocky Mountain Nordic (RMN) to promote Nordic skiing between our four regions!

Download the 2015-16 Kids Training Log here, or link to Nordic Rocks to find more information and sign up for online tracking. Keep track of your distance… we’ll check back in at the end of the season to ask you for your total count of kilometers. Remember this should be fun, and is totally voluntary!
