Winter Wednesday’s Ski Club

Let’s get OUTSIDE this winter! 

Ski in beautiful Leelanau. Leland Gliders will meet on Wednesdays after school until 5:15 PM for 8 weeks:  January 5 to February 23.

Winter Wednesdays is a ski club that focuses on learning to ski by playing games and doing fun drills. Enjoying Northern Michigan outdoors and maintaining fitness is our main goal. 

Grades: 3rd graders on up are welcome to join Leland Gliders Ski Club. Sign-up in advance via google form. Winter Wednesdays with the Leland Gliders

Equipment: Classic skis or Skate skis. Snowshoers are welcomed but will need a guardian for supervision. 

Rentals: $10.00 rental fee per day at Suttons Bay Bikes. Pay directly to SB Bikes or give Coach Kirt the $10.  Please go to the Bike shop in downtown Suttons Bay and get fitted for boots, skis, and poles. Pickup and dropoff of rental equipment is on your own.  Scholarships are available!

What to wear: Layer winter clothing that allows you to move. Wear a hat and gloves/mittens! 

Variable weather conditions: We will not have Ski/Snowshoe Club if the weather is not conducive to skiing/snowshoeing. I will send an email.

Transportation: Busing is provided to 45 North Recreational Trail, 8580 Horn Rd. Equipment will be transported by Coach Kirt. Deliver to my classroom in the middle school on Wednesday mornings. Pickup is at 45 North at 5:15 PM. 

Contact: Volunteer Karen Kirt  kkirt@lelandschool.com  or (231)360-3311 with questions. 

Grant money has been acquired for equipment, but everything is on backorder. Ask for Cross Country gear on your Christmas wish list or go to 2nd hand stores! You want NNN nordic bindings. These will be the most compatible.

Three Local Race Events to Be Announced.
