Waiting to Race


We are excited about our ninth year of fun on XC skis and look forward to seeing you this winter.  The WPNT teaches our young skiers the joys of Nordic skiing. Learning great technique and pushing ourselves to ski fast is secondary to just having fun on skis. Don’t forget, those lacrosse sticks are back this winter for you Nord-Cross enthusiasts. This year the staff at Devil’s Thumb is assisting us with our coaching duties.  Thank you parents for helping with snacks, kid wrangling and assisting with the coaching.

Beginners who have not skied before, need to learn the basics. Several lessons from the teaching staff at Devil’s Thumb, or one of the other great Nordic Centers, is required before joining our group.

For you first years who are just learning how to skate on skis you need to seek the instruction staff at Devil’s Thumb, Snow Mountain or your favorite Nordic ski center.  Talk to us for some tips on getting started.  After a couple lessons you may join us for TRY IT...YOU’LL LIKE IT during our first three sessions beginning Sunday, DECEMBER 28TH. We are all practicing our basics early in the season and you need to be there.

For you veterans of past years, we want you back all nine sessions with loud sighs when you are missing to attend a school social, birthday party or a powder day on the slopes……..no pressure from your team here. We understand will accept it when soccer season starts up in the middle of the winter. Veterans who cannot come to all nine sessions…join us whenever you can.

Skiers need good skating skis, poles and skating boots, properly waxed and ready to go. If you are new to the program, a coach will be quizzing you as to your equipment. Help and suggestions from a coach are available before the season begins. Just ask!

Program cost this year (2014-2015) will be $125 per child for the season. If you elect the first three sessions only, the cost is $50 per child. Trail fees for DTR are purchased individually each Sunday. We will spend all of our weekends at DTR this year.
