What is the Skis for Kids program?
The Skis for Kids program makes x-c skiing affordable and available to all youth in our community by providing ski equipment for kids. This year we’re offering a limited number of transportation scholarships to ease the economic crunch facing schools and community groups. Thanks to generous sponsors, we can offer up to one half of bus or van transportation costs, or $100, whichever is smaller, until our transportation scholarship funds have been used. Applicants will be served on a first come, first served basis.
Who can use Skis For Kids equipment?
Any youth group or organization can “rent” skis for their kids. We provided skis for the Barnelopet kids race and the Gliders ski program in years past.
How much does it cost?
We charge a dollar per ski rental but we welcome additional donations.
How do I get involved?
We need donations of no-wax skis, poles and NNN boots. We occasionally need help with group outings too.
Thanks to all of our generous contributors!
