“SnowKidz Cross-Country Cross 2015” (Sunday, 22 March 2015)


500 Metres of Heart-Pounding Snow Fun!

Click on the skis.  Scream downhill.  Get some air.  Slalom through gates.  Hang on through a banked turn.  Sounds fun?  How about easy?  Yeah?

Now ski back up the slope.  Do an uphill slalom.  Heart pounding?  Not yet?  Really?  Back down the slope.  More turns.  More kickers.  More air.  More banked turns.  Spin around.  Ski backwards.  Repeat.

Sounds fun?  Great!

What’s that?  You have never skied before?  Or like almost never before?  And you’re a boy or girl 4 to 14 years of age?  Yes?  No problem!  This event was made for you!  Really!

Come to SnowKidz Cross-Country Cross 2015.  It’s free!

Sunday, 22 March 2015, from 13:30 to 16:00.

Join the fun in the ski playground found northeast of Assiniboine Park Drive and Pavilion Crescent in Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg.

We supply the skis, the boots, the bindings, and the poles.

What’s that?  You already have your own ski equipment?  Bring it!

No way!  You already belong to a ski club?  Awesome!  Bring your stuff, bring your skiing friends, and meet you in the ski playground!

You supply the smiles (and while you’re at it bring your bicycle or multi-sport helmet).

Put on by the kids, parents, and certified coaches of the Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits (APJ) ski club.

Awesomely supported by Nordic X-Ventures, the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC), the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba (CCSAM), Cross Country Canada (CCC), the Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS), and Audi (yes, the car maker).
