cross country skiing youth programs

The Snow Farm youth programs are the perfect way for your child to have a ton of fun, make friends, and develop new skills. These programs accommodate for a full range of abilities from beginners to those wanting to be competitive. 

Learning to cross-country ski opens up a whole new side to skiing, one that promotes a healthy lifestyle and freedom to ski anywhere. Your child will learn in a fun environment an quickly become confident skiers ready to explore the trails at Snow Farm.

Snow Farm NZ has three programs in 2021. On Saturday afternoons from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for 6 weeks starting July 31st, we will be running the Snow Farm Academy and Mini Merinos programs. 

The Snow Farm Academy is for youth from 9 years old and up and will give the participants life-long skills on cross country skis through a progressive and fun environment. Mini Merinos is our fun Saturday Afternoon program for kids aged 5-9. Ideal for learning the basics of cross country skiing, playing some games and having a good time on snow.

 Team Snow Farm, which will be year seven at school and above is for competitive skiers who want to compete in both Biathlon and Cross Country Skiing. The team will be training on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 11:30 am from the 19th of June until September 18th. If your child is not already participating in the Snow Farm Team pre-winter training, please contact us to see if this would be suitable.

Both programs will culminate in the participants entering and competing in the Merino Muster with the support of their coaches. 

All participants in any of our youth programs will be able to purchase a Youth Seasons pass for $50 with an additional $49 for rentals if required, family pass options are also available to participants families.
