Youth Development

Cross Country U10/U12, ages 8-12

This program is designed for youth who wish to explore the enjoyment of cross country ski training and racing. Skiers participate in physical conditioning activities and learn the basic cross country techniques. Competitive opportunities are available and encouraged through Rocky Mountain Nordic (RMN) Races, Steamboat Cup events, and the Steamboat Nordic Race Series.

  • Participants will need cross country ski equipment (classic and skate) and a ski pass (Youth All Mountain Howelsen Pass) to Howelsen Hill and the Steamboat Ski Touring Center
  • Participants will need a U.S. Ski & Snowboard (USSS) General Membership for Rocky Mountain Nordic races. RMN membership is a required add on to the USSS membership and is automatically added when registering with USSS
