Registration for Sandpoint Nordic Club’s Youth Recreation Program is open Nov. 5

By Reader Staff

The Youth Recreational Ski Team is an eight-week program that offers kids from 6 to 18 years of age the opportunity to learn and enjoy cross-country skiing. Coaches and adult volunteers lead groups of kids in activities designed to teach the fundamentals of Nordic (cross-country) skiing, from fun on the snow for the youngest skiers, to technique and even racing for more experienced skiers. 

Skiers younger than 6 are welcome to join but must be accompanied by an adult or parent during the ski session (there is no program fee for kids under 6). Sessions are hosted at Pine Street Woods from January through February, and season rentals are available at a discounted rate for ski team participants. 

Register by Dec. 10 to avoid a late registration fee.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.
