What is the cost and what equipment will athletes need? The activities fee varies depending on your school.   Students must have 2 sets of skis and poles, one for classic and one for skate skiing. You can rent two sets of skis and poles from the school for $70 total.  You will need to purchase boots to fit our roller skis and rental equipment.  Only NNN boots will fit our equipment. Here are some acceptable choices: Salomon pro combi ProLinks, Fischer RC3  combi,  Rossi X8 pursuit,  Alpina RCO combi, Salomon RS Carbon skate, Salomon Equipe 8 skate,  NO classic boots (unless you use them for classic only and have a separate pair for skate). 

NOTE: you will need a good quality boot that can work for skate and classic. When you grab the ankle cuff, you should not be able to easily flop it side to side - you need that support! They work great for both skate and classic.  See Gear and equipment on the left for more info. 

Ski rental is available when you register for Nordic skiing online.

Maggie Hohlen:

I am an Elk River Nordic Ski team alum, where I participated in competitive skiing for 6 years. I grew up with Woodland Trails Park in my backyard, and spent many winter weekends skiing and hiking to Top of the World. After high school I attended Bethel University, and continued to ski during my free time. During my time at Bethel I had the opportunity to travel to Spain, and live there for several months. Now I teach Spanish at Westwood Middle School. I have a puppy, and I am hoping to teach him how to skijor!
