The August introductory session is designed for anyone with kids 9-13 years old who is thinking about Loppet-Skiwerx programming. For the introductory session equipment is provided (must have own helmet, closed toe shoes and, preferably, ski boots). Mountain bikes, rollerskis and poles will be available for the introductory session. Kids will mountain bike, go orienteering, rollerski, play games and build strength and agility.
