WINTERSPORTS – Signup is underway for the club-sponsored youth cross-country ski program that runs for eight winter weekends at Mount Spokane State Park.
Families who become members of Spokane Nordic, the club that supports the cross-country trail system on the mountain, can register children in Nordic Kids. Adult cross-country skiing lessons also are available.
Family memberships are $60 per year and Nordic Kids enrollment is $75, and $70 for additional kiddos. Registration costs increase after Dec. 15.
Starting Jan. 7, the youths meet in small groups on each Saturday through March 4 for two-hour group sessions with certified instructors who emphasize fun on skis as well as learning skills for classic and skating techniques.
Following decades of tradition, the kids are treated to hot cocoa and cookies at the end of each lesson when they return to the Selkirk Lodge.
