The XC program is designed around skiers who love to stay in shape by skiing in the winter, and perhaps compete in other sports year-round. It is skate-based and the emphasis is on fun, camaraderie, fitness, and skill. For those who wish to race, the Wasatch Citizens Series provides an entry to competition.
Ages: 11 – 19
Years in sport: 0 – 8
Equipment: One pair of Nordic skate boots and one pair of skate skis. Rentals will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Schedule: Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, 4:15 – 5:45. Now starting right after Thanksgiving and running to March.
The XC-Team meets at Mountain Dell Golf Course on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. While there is a one day a week option, to really learn and enjoy cross country skiing, two days a week is ideal. High school students can petition for Lifetime Activities P.E. credit through their Salt Lake District high school.
