Notes:

  • The CNSC Elementary School Ski Program prefers one teacher, TA, parent supervisor per 7-10 children to assist the children with sizing of rental equipment, help overseeing the group during lessons, pulling up the rear on the trails and providing assistance to children putting on and taking off gear. However, please remember that the lessons are for the children, and parents need to be comfortable enough on skis to manage themselves.

  • CNSC will outfit one parent supervisor/group at no charge. All other visiting parents will receive a special rate of 50% off rental equipment and trail fee,  (includes use of classic ski set only)

  • For school groups staying for a full day, you are responsible for supervision outside of the morning lesson time.  Instructors are only provided for the 1.5 hour lesson.  Please ensure that you have the proper number of supervisors (teachers/ parents) for your afternoon at the gravel pit.

  • Ski Patrol: CNSC has a small volunteer group of Nordic Ski Patrol certified through the CSPS.  We do not guarantee that there will be Ski Patrol personnel on site when your class visits.  However, we do have staff on hand with Level 1 first aid certification.

  • Other programs are available upon request.
