2009-2010 Information
 

Welcome to another great season of cross country skiing at the Omenica Ski Club.  Everyone at the Club is hoping for an excellent winter of skiing! Our Ski League lessons are set up to promote having fun while learning basic ski techniques in a developmental style for ages 3-12.  Our coaches are trained to offer your child a great skiing experience.

Lessons will begin on Saturday, January 9th and will be held every Saturday and every second Wednesday throughout the ski season.

Saturday lessons will start at 1:00 p.m. and Wednesday lessons will start at 6:00 p.m.  Lessons run for 2 hours for all groups except for the 3-5 year olds, which usually last about an hour.  Please make sure your child is at the ski club about 15 minutes early and is ready with their equipment on by starting time.  Some leaders leave the open area right away with their groups.  If you arrive late, it may be difficult for you to find your child’s group.

Bunnyrabbit parents need to stay with their Bunnyrabbits at all times during lessons.  Parents of Jackrabbit and Track Attack skiers are asked to stay at the club during lessons incase of an emergency or if your child needs you.  If you are a skier, enjoy the trails.  If not, please feel free to visit with other parents in the lodge. 

We need volunteers to bake sweets, do kitchen duty, shovel the decks and fill the wood box throughout the ski season.  A sign up sheet is available in the lodge.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Don’t forget to label your child’s belongings (skis, poles, hats, mittens, water bottles). We will have a lost and found box set up in the lodge for ‘lost’ items.

          For the safety of our skiers, classes will be cancelled if the temperature is colder than -20 at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday and at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights.  The following Wednesday nights have been reserved for ‘make-up’ days due to cold weather cancellations: January 27, February 10 and 24.

          If you have any questions or concerns at any time during the ski season, please phone Karen at 692-7475 or Valerie at 692-3617.
Registration can be done at Western Financial Group (Northcountry Insurance) at the Lakeview Mall.
