2016-2017 Winter Season

Practice for the Nordic Ski Club, for grades 7-12, will begin December 12 and meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:15-5:15 through mid-February (no ski club on days when school is out).  The Club meets at the Teton Lakes Golf Course, snow or no snow.   
Kids can take buses from school - please contact the Madison School District Transportation Department at 208-359-3265 or visit their website for information on which bus to take from the Junior High or from the High School.  Once we get snow, kids can store ski equipment on site.  
Coaches Steve Barrus, Joel Simpson and Stephanie Hancock will teach both classic and skate skiing techniques, so bring whichever type of Nordic ski (skate or classic) you have.  (In an ideal world, it'd be great if everyone had both a skate and a classic set, but we're just happy to have you come on whatever skis you have.)  
No prior cross-country ski experience necessary, all levels welcome.  
Start looking for skis, bindings, boots, and poles - there are only a limited number of City skis for rent.  Check out the rental tab for more information on ski rental options.
