Heads up...

NEW this year: Family/parent volunteer expectations

For the 2023/2024 season, the family/parent volunteer expectations  2 volunteer shifts per skier in a family. Volunteers may be a skier's parents, grandparents, siblings, another family member, neighbor, etc. Volunteer shifts include course set-up/maintenance and meets. Sign-ups will be available for all.


Skier headbands

Skier headbands are ready for ordering, folks! Please go to Skier Headbands to view this year's glamorous options and order your skier one. Like the sweatshirts, purchasing a headband is OPTIONAL. Orders are due on Sunday, December 10th end of day.

Winter Training Trip registration

If already know that your skier is going to join the (OPTIONAL)  Winter Training Trip, AWESOME! You will find loads of information on the page and links to other helpful pages within this website.

Given the lack of snow, coaches will talk to the skiers at practice more about trip and the consequences of little to no snow and being a new skier and attendance on this trip (which really is a BLAST).

Your skier's registration is due on Sunday, December 10th end of day.

 Grocery bagging at Cub

Sign-ups are now full. In the event a skier needs to cancel their time slot, the sign-ups are available below for udpates.

Carpooling, anyone?

If you are interested in joining a carpool, please complete the form below. Em will create a separate "team" for each carpooling group based on school, so that carpool members may communicate separately.


What else?

Used gear and clothing?

Do you have used Nordic ski gear or clothing you no longer need?  If so, we want to (a) help you sell off gently used items and (b) provide opportunities to our team's skiers to purchase your gear and clothing. The beginning of the season is the perfect time to do this.  Go to For Sale for next steps.  If you seek used gear and clothing, visit the page regularly.
