Cross Country Skiing for Kids | Lessons for Ages 5-11

 Lapland Lake Kids' Clubs, Reindeer Rally & More!


Our popular Lemmings Kids' Club offers a full hour
of instruction specifically geared to children from age 5 - 11. Children learn differently from adults, are generally fearless (they have less far to fall!), and love to play games. We make sure they have fun while learning how to cross country ski - a lifelong, healthy sport!

Under the supervision of Terry Ross and/or Pat Ferri (recently called the "pied piper of cross country skiing" by Cross Country Skier Magazine), Lapland Lake's kid-loving, PSIA certified instructors, children play exciting group ski games on snow in our whimsical children's ski area. Focus will be on striding, classic technique. 

For children age 8-14, Terry and/or Pat will address the fun and fast skate technique in the Youth/Junior Skate Club.

Lemmings Kids' Club meets weekends and holidays at 11:15am.  Youth/Junior Skate Club  meets weekends and holidays at 1pm and each runs concurrently with an adult  Beginner Classic lesson so everyone in the family can learn to ski simultaneously! $25 per child.


Our amazing Reindeer Rally program offers games on skis! Guaranteed Fun!
Supervised by PSIA-certified and talented kid-loving instructors Pat Ferri (recently called the "pied piper of cross country skiing" by Cross Country Skier Magazine) and Terry Ross, the Reindeer Rally is a geared to kids of all abilities from ages 5 - 11.

Kids play a host of on-ski games including Broomball, Toilet Bowl Tag, Limbo, Spider (flag tag), Soccer on Snow, Relay Slalom, Caterpillar Relay, Sharks & Minnows, Scavenger Hunt and Elephant Hunt among others!

Your children will have a blast, and without even knowing it, they will be learning lifelong ski skills!

Parents are encouraged to join in the fun. Or, if you prefer, you may take this opportunity to enjoy adult ski time knowing your child or children are well-supervised and having the time of their lives!

Cost for the 1-1/2 hour Reindeer Rally is just $15.

This program is so popular with all our younger skiers that parents may want to consider purchase of a season-long Reindeer Rally Pass for unlimited program access. Purchase by January 4, 2015 for just $60! After January 4, $75. Limited quantities - order your pass(es) soon!

Our Reindeer Rally meets weekends and holidays from 2:15 - 3:45pm.  Please note: We need a minimum of three participants for each Reindeer Rally. We ask parents who are enrolling their children in both the 1pm Kids' Club and 2:15pm Reindeer Rally to return to the Finnish Line Lodge at 2pm to check in with Pat, Terry and their child or children before the Reindeer Rally fun on ski program begins.
