Youth Ski Program

In-person Youth Ski Program sessions on Saturdays are back!
Please visit the Safety page for COVID-19 protocol at IWSC.

Family memberships are $125, first child is free, each additional child is $5.
Please visit the Membership page to begin the registration process.

There isn't an option to take equipment home this season. All equipment must remain at the IWSC.

Please join us as a volunteer coach. With so many child participants, we need as many helping hands as we can get. Many of our volunteer coaches have moved on as their children have grown and joined the middle school and high school teams. Please don't be intimidated by the word 'coach'. You don't need to be an expert skier, you just need to have patience and a positive attitude. Please reach out to Katie or Peter Gebhardt to let them know you're interested in volunteering. It's a great opportunity to get on skis with your kids, and become even more a part of the IWSC community.


  • All children ages ten and under along with their families. As soon as a child can walk, they can cross country ski.

Our Focus

  • Teaching the fundamentals of classic style cross country skiing. Activities and games allowing children to enjoy the outdoors during the wonderful Wisconsin winters are a key part of the program. Parents are encouraged to participate in each lesson along with their kids.

What's Included

  • With your $125 family membership the first child enrolled in youth ski program is complimentary, each additional child is $5.00. Family memberships include all trail fees, equipment for children enrolled in the YSP anytime they want to ski, and equipment for parents anytime they ski with their children.
