SUNDAYS AT 9 MILE RECREATION AREA
EVERY SUNDAY BEGINNING IN JANUARY (IF CHALET IS OPEN!)
FROM 2:00 – 3:00 PM
The Wausau Nordic Ski Club will again host the Snow Striders program for children in grades kindergarten(K4) through 3rd grade. The program is intended to be fun and get the kids used to being on skis for the enjoyment of our winter. You can use your own equipment or you can use equipment for our rental inventory at no cost.
The program starts on January 17th and is run each Sunday until February 14. There are make-up dates on February 21st and 28th in case we have to cancel one of the other sessions. Attendance at each session is not mandatory, but of course, the more often you can attend, the more you learn.
The cost of this program is FREE for club members. There is no non-member rate. If you need to get a family membership, go to our Membership page and obtain a family membership. To sign your child up for the Snow Striders program, simply click on the Snow Striders sign-up button on this page. If you have multiple children in the program, please sign up all of them as we need their information to make sure we have equipment for them. All Snow Striders need to be preregistered by January 3 – NO DAY Of Registration
We are looking for additional help for this program and ask that parents volunteer to help at 2 more more sessions. Parents are also encouraged to help out on the trails and practice area and just need to wear skis or snowshoes. No experience is needed to help. Please note, due to the Covid-19 protocols, you will not be allowed to be in the chalet for an extended period of time. With that in mind, you may as well put on a pair of skis or snowshoes and join us on the trail.
1:15 – 2:00 – Check-in and Equipment pickup.
2:00 – 3:00 – On-snow activities. (fun stuff)
3:00 – 3:15 – Return equipment
Besides the Snow Strider program, Nine Mile offers young children a “Kids Adventure Trail”, the Cookie Trail, and our Olympic Field of Dreams.
