Loppet Foundation

Loppet TRAIL KIDS 2018/19 Winter Session

The Loppet TRAIL KIDS Winter Program is for youth ages 7 – 14 years old  and provides coaching instruction for both classic and skate ski technique. Loppet TRAIL KIDS is offered at three locations around the Twin cities (Hyland, Wirth Trailhead and Elm Creek).

Beginner to advanced skiers are split into ability and age coaching groups so that each youth is challenged appropriately. TRAIL KIDS sessions include technique drills, relays, games on skis, distance adventure skiing and preparing for upcoming race events. The main focus is developing skills, having fun and falling in love with a lifetime sport! This year we have added a fun race series called the TRAIL KIDS Super Ski Series.
