The Memphremagog Bill Koch Ski Club is all about kids having fun on skis! There are Bill Koch clubs all over the country (Bill Koch remains the only American to have medaled in Nordic, he lives in southern Vermont). We allow kids of virtually any age, but if your child is under 6 years old, you or a designated friend needs to be there to help them. Lots of adults enjoy skiing with us also, you are invited!
We meet at the lower field of the Primeau trail section at: 3892 Darling Hill Road (please click to see map). There is a plowed parking lot down into the field.
Tuesday afternoons as soon as we can get moving after school, generally about 3:45 p.m. We go until 5:00 p.m. and generally start the first Tuesday in January if snow permits. (But not New Year's day!). Signup at any of the ski rental days and also online here. )
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST:
Bill Koch membership is $10 per child, ($5 if parents are MSTF members). Season rentals for children are about $20 depending on what they get.
DO KIDS HAVE TO RACE:
We support racing but few of our kids get into that. There are races around northern Vermont virtually every weekend for those who want to compete. To race elsewhere kids have to join NENSA which is the New England umbrella organization (click here for details).
