About Snowflakes (kindergarten-2nd grade)

This is a 1-day program for our youngest never-ever to beginner skier. Coaches work with skiers to learn the basics which include using equipment, body position, how to stand up and how to fall down and uphill and downhill technique. Skiers learn through group games and skill development activities. Lollipops are also encouraged to take part in our weekend fall Family Fun Hikes that take place during the dryland season.

Coaches: Head Coach Gretchen Czaja & Assistant Coaches Stacy Bebo, Jen Lockhart, Doria Ware, Gered Dunne.

All skiers must purchase a Woodstock Nordic Center discounted team season pass for $79 paid for when the center opens for the season.  This pass allows skiers access to the facility and trails all season long. Trails need proper grooming and maintenance for safe skiing and this is what this pass covers. We encourage skiers to ski as much as possible outside of practice to develop basic ski skills.
