Ages: 10-17


The WinterFit program is a unique opportunity for those who are athletic and adventurists at heart who want to continue to advance their ski techniques and broaden the boundaries of winter activities. Come experience the best that winter has to offer with classic skiing, skate skiing, snow shoeing and backcountry skiing right here in our own backyard. All sessions build towards the culmination of a snow cave building (quinzie) and sleep over finale.
With a focus on skill development of all the cross-country techniques, our goal is to create life long participants of winter activities.
We are seeking young athletes that have a sense of adventure, a willingness to learn, and a desire to share this unique experience with other like minded individuals. Regular attendance is expected.
This is NOT a learn to ski program. All participants must have either:
  • previous skiing experience
  • been in another Sovereign or other club ski program
  • have taken 3 lessons before Christmas in order to enroll in the program post Christmas
