Jackrabbit

Despite a bit of a slow start to winter last year, we had a great season of Jackrabbit in 2016.  From Bunnies to Racing Rabbits, we had approximately 125 Jackrabbits registered last year.  We look forward to another great winter of skiing fun and learning for 2017.

  • Registration Day: December 3, 2016 10:00 am - 12 noon at the Ski Club
  • Last Registration Day (cutoff date): Saturday December 17, 2016

The Jackrabbit Program runs from January to early March and offers a very fun and engaging group environment for kids to learn to Nordic ski.  The focus is on fun and skill development within the context of games, activities, and trail skiing with a group.  Our coaches are very enthusiastic and love to ski!
