Parent & Tot

Ski to School
Grade 2 and 7
All Grade 2 and Grade 7 classes in the Golden area get to enjoy nordic skiing with their classes, building outdoor aerobic activity into regular school days. Grade 7 students come out 3 times while grade 2 students will come out 4-6 times during the ski season. We are also exploring the possibility of adding additional grades.
Club instructors teach the students basic cross-country skiing technique through a variety of games and activities. All skiing equipment is provided and lessons are provided to all of Golden and Nicholson’s students.
Weekly sessions led by volunteers and coaches teach the fundamentals of classic style skiing to children and adults with developmental disabilities. One of our athletes, Shelly Poland won a gold and bronze medal at the Special Olympics World Championships in 2013.
