TAMARACK GLIDERS & AVALANCHE PROGRAMS
Unfortunately we will not be able to offer our Youth Training Programs this season. Please check out our Customizable Training Package for lesson opportunities.
You can register below or in-person at the Tamarack Cross-Country Ski Center. When you register online, your payment will be taken at the Tamarack Cross-Country Ski Center. A liability release and minor consent form must be signed and on-file prior to class participation. Please call 760.934.2442 x8 with questions.
Glider and Avalanche programs include rentals, trail pass, and instruction for nine weeks. Parents are encouraged to come out and ski with the kids, especially the younger ones. Parents skiing and assisting the class get free rentals and trail pass. A discounted package is offered for parents not assisting the class and wishing to ski on their own. Glider kids can come early or ski late at no extra charge on glider days, but if they come on a non-glider day will pay the student rate for rental and a trail pass and regular prices for parents.
Cross-country skiing is fun in all kinds of weather, but in case of a severe storm, a session may be cancelled. Please call the Snow and Trail report for notice of cancellation: 760-934-2442 ext. 7 or ext. 8 to speak with a ski center instructor.
The clothing worn for cross-country skiing is different than for alpine skiing. Cross-country skiing is an aerobic sport and it is possible to become quite warm while exercising on snow. Multiple layer clothing are preferable to a single heavy snowsuit. Recommended clothing includes fleece jackets, nylon windbreakers and pants, and wicking type long underwear. Hats, mittens or warm gloves and sunglasses or goggles area a must. Don’t forget the sunscreen.
