Snow Striders

Snow Striders registration opens in December. Club membership is required. Club Membership runs from October 1 to September 30.

Besides the Snow Striders program, Nine Mile offers young children a “Kids Adventure Trail”, the Cookie Trail, and our Olympic Field of Dreams.

An Intro to the Nordic Ski Lifestyle!

Snow Striders program is for children in grades K4 through 3rd. The program is a fun introduction to skiing and enjoying winter outside! Rental skis, boots, and poles (for older children) are available at no cost during each session.

Attendance at each session is not mandatory but the more you can attend, the more you learn!


Snow Striders is free for club members - join Wausau Nordic Ski Club as a family and enjoy winter together! If you have multiple children in the program, please sign up each child individually. Sign-up opens in December.
