"WeSki" is a program sponsored by the Vasa Ski Club (VSC) in the Grand Traverse area of the northern lower peninsula of Michigan.  It was developed in response to the need in our area to provide an affordable entry-level, small group instructional experience in the sport of cross-country (XC) skiing that’s age and ability appropriate. Three weekly 1-hour sessions are offered in January. A tasty,light and nutritious meal follows each lesson to facilitate whole-family participation and socialization.

Goals are to lay the foundation for a life-long physical activity that can be enjoyed in the winter months, individually, in a group or as a family, promoting better physical health, social interaction, family bonding, use of local XC trail systems, and participation in local and national XC ski events.

Since it was such a popular session last year, the RACING CLINIC will be held once again on all three Sundays, even though this group is well beyond "entry-level" skiing!

In 2018, WeSKi will be again be offered on a Sunday afternoons.

Dates are January 14, 21 & 28, 3:00 - 5:00 PM at Timber Ridge Resort.

VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED FOR WeSKI

The Vasa Ski Club relies of the generosity of volunteer coaches to provide ski instruction for the participants of WeSki.

A Coaches' Clinic will take place on Saturday, January 6, 3:00 - 5:00 PM at Timber Ridge.  Nationally renowned PSIA Nordic Coach Emily Lovett will lead the session. It will be amazing!  Plan to attend and take advantage of all the coaching wisdom that Emily has to impart!
