The popular 4-H Ski & Snowboard Program is a fantastic opportunity for youth in grades 1 to 12 to learn to ski or snowboard or brush up on their skills! (Kindergarteners will need to wait until next year!) New this year is 4-H Jr. Ski Patrollers Program and 4-H Ski Race Training - read the below or click on the flyers for more details. These new programs are geared toward more advanced level skiers. Held at The Homestead Resort in Glen Arbor, Michigan, the one-hour group lessons, run each Sunday afternoon, beginning Jan. 7 through Feb. 25, 2018 (no class on Jan 14 or Feb 18). Specific lesson times and rates vary; download the program flyer for complete details. Pre-registration is required and the registration deadline is Monday, Dec. 11, 2017. Lesson attendance is REQUIRED each week, or 4-H reserves the right to discontinue participation without a refund.
“Open Ski” is available from 11 a.m. until the lesson starts, and after the lesson until 4 p.m. Immediate families of participants are invited to ski or board on lesson days at a reduced rate (get a voucher at the 4-H Desk). Also, a “Free Day” of open ski/board, compliments of The Homestead, will be on March 4, 2018 from 12-4 p.m. The Homestead extends a free lift ticket to LEELANAU COUNTY 5th graders.
