The JackRabbit program is designed for the “FUNdamentals” stage of skill development and is suitable for children 5-10 years of age. The objective is for children to learn basic cross-country ski skills and to instil a lifelong interest in the sport, thereby enhancing their quality of life and health.
The JackRabbit program runs each Sunday afternoon from 2:00pm – 3:30pm, from the first weekend in January through the first weekend in March, snow conditions permitting. If there are favourable conditions, we will begin the program in mid-to-late December.
Registration for the JackRabbit program is completed online or in person at our Open House event. There are a limited number of JackRabbit spaces, so please register early to avoid disappointment. Registration before December 1st provides the program organizers with adequate time to complete their preparations so the program gets off to a clean start when the trails are ready.
