Nordic Rocks with Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC)

Ariens Nordic Center is partnering with CXC and Nordic Rocks to provide an outdoor adventure for youth in Northeast Wisconsin. The Nordic Rocks program allows elementary, middle, and high school students to experience cross-country skiing for the first time or the 100th time.

Trained staff will provide Nordic Rocks group instruction by engaging youth with various fun activities while working on skills progressions at the same time.

We provide the Nordic Rocks adjustable ski equipment and the lessons! We can accommodate group sizes up to 60, ages 6 – 18, and offer sessions each week of the winter season, weather-dependent. Winter boots and warm clothing is required.

Nordic Rocks is a great opportunity for school groups, youth clubs, and more!
