Youth Rangers, a program for kids 10-15 years old, is a next step for those who are looking to use their Nordic skiing skills as a base for wider experience in winter survival, ski patrol, ski instruction, and other aspects of Nordic Skiing.
Participants will meet for three-hour Saturday afternoon sessions for 7 weeks. While they will spend a portion of their time enriching their skiing skills, the majority of the program is focused on rescue and aid techniques and back-country survival skills under the guidance of Ski Patrol members, Mt. Spokane Rangers, and other experienced outdoor adventure enthusiasts. They will also learn basics of ski instruction, which may include assisting with up to 3 Nordic Kids lessons.
The ultimate goal is to encourage kids to be more active as young adults and contribute to the ski community, perhaps someday even becoming Nordic Kids instructors or joining the Ski Patrol.
Location: Mt. Spokane Cross-Country Ski Park
Cost: $125 per Ranger. Family must have Spokane Nordic membership
Dates: Saturdays Jan 3-Feb 14, plus assisting with Nordic Kids Olympics Feb 21
Time: 12:30 a.m. - 3:30
