The Bunnies program is designed for the 5 year old child new to x-country skiing. You may notice that much of the lesson time is used practicing skills and playing games without the use of poles. This is to teach and encourage good body position and balance without depending on the poles for balance. Later, poles will be introduced and will be needed by all skiers. The focus of this program is to ensure that children have fun on skis. Many games are used to teach skill lessons and to incorporate fun into skiing. They may forget that they are on skis! The majority of the lessons will take place on packed flat terrain.
