TD Bank Kids Ski Day will be returning to Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center on Sunday, December 18th with a great opportunity for kids and families to enjoy a day of winter fun, with or without snow on the ground!
Presented in conjunction with the New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA), the TD Bank Kid’s Ski Day is open to kids ranging in age from elementary to middle school. No preregistration is necessary and all activities and rentals for kids are free. Trail passes for all participating kids and adults will be only $5 (vs. $19 regularly). Rentals for participating parents will only be $10.
The day’s activities and games will include capture the flag; sharks and minnows; tag games; an on snow obstacle course and snow tubing (weather permitting). Indoor fun will include using pine cones to make a natural bird food hanger and decorating Christmas cookies (supplied by Great Glen Trails).
This year’s event will also be open to adaptive athletes, who are welcome to contact Great Glen Trails or NENSA to coordinate their involvement. Any kids who are first time skiers will also be able to take a free mini-lesson to see just how easy and fun cross country skiing can be.
“With the kind of activities we have planned for kids and families it really doesn’t matter if we have snow or not–we can still play nearly all the games! If there is snow all the skiing and tubing will add a lot, but it will be a great day in any event,” said Sue Wemyss, Great Glen Trails Ski School Director.
