Youth Rangers

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 morning 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 includes assisting with up to 3 Nordic Kids lessons, which run from 1-3 pm.

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.

  • Back-country skiing

  • Introduction to State Park Rangers

  • Alpine Safety / Survival Skills
