Opeongo Nordic kids’ program to start January 12

Opeongo Hills Nordic Ski Club advises parents to get your kids outside this winter! They’ll learn to play on cross-country skis, review basic nordic skills for classic skiing and get an introduction to skate-skiing. Older and/or more experienced kids will participate in informal time trials. This program is facilitated by Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI ) certified instructors, Ontario-certified teachers and other experienced skiers/instructors.

Having kids in the program allows for the opportunity for parents to ski or snowshoe the club’s beautiful trails.

If there are rainy/icy days and/or temperatures colder than -15°C, they will skip that day (no rescheduling for weather).

There is some rental equipment available, or parents can also check out the Killaloe Library’s sports lending hub for cross country ski equipment. Play It Again Sports in Pembroke usually has a range of used cross country ski equipment.
