Youth Medical Form
The jackrabbit program is aimed at children ages 6 through 9. The emphasis of the program is for children to develop ski techniques in a fun environment.
Children are taught basic cross country ski skills, both classic and skating. The program is designed to instill a lifelong enjoyment in the sport of cross country skiing. In addition, children develop confidence, ski and socialize with other skiers their age, build on their overall motor skills development, and above all, have fun!
When? Where? How Much?
Jackrabbit lessons are held at the Doug Barnes Cabin on Saturdays at 11am. The program runs from January to March at 2pm.
For insurance reasons, students must become a member of the Ptarmigan Nordic Ski Club. Youth membership fees are $25 for the year (or $50 for the entire family). Jackrabbit program fees are an additional $30 per child. This cost covers CCA youth program registration fees, 8 lessons and any additional youth activities organized through the club.

Where do I get skis?
The PNSC has skis available for jackrabbits to use during the season. There is a $100 deposit (postdated cheque) for the skis, which is returned at the end of the season when the skis are returned. This includes skis, boots and poles.
Parents are expected to help with clothes and equipment, joining in classes and games, and arranging refreshments. Parents are also encouraged to become certified instructors by taking the training courses arranged by the Ski Club.
