Creating Lifelong Skiers

It sounds simple, but it's not as easy as one might think. The right exposure at the right time and the engagement of families and the community are critical. 

The the three most important factors are:

1. Gradual exposure to the skills, complexity, time/family commitments,
and expenses of the sport. 
2. "Ski for Sport" programs during the skill development window of 9-13 years old.
With entry before 11 being optimal. 
3. Staying in a competitive program through growth spurts and beyond.

K Counter Instructions

  • Posted on: January 24, 2019 - 11:38am
  • By: AmyC

Kids can track their kilometers throughout the season to earn kilometer award pins. This is an incentive to get out and ski during our brief winter!  Clubs set their own standards for awards (gold, silver and bronze). A sample from the Hyland Club is 100k gold, 50k silver and 25k bronze.

The overall Top 10 skiers from our SkiSparks and Skiwerx K Counters are invited to our MYSL/Skiwerx Banquet in March to recieve special recognition. 

Kids can log all of their skiing kilometers (not just MYSL sessions). We close the K Counter after the first full weekend in March. 

Meet Alayna Sonnesyn, MYSL almuni

Hello MYSL families! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Alayna Sonnesyn and I am in the midst of skiing and traveling around the world- chasing my dreams as a professional cross country ski racer!

I grew up in Plymouth, MN where my parents taught me how to ski at a very young age. They encourage my siblings and me to spend as much time as possible outside and to turn activities into adventures with few limits. They brought us to MYSL practice at French Park every Sunday afternoon throughout the winter where we got to ski with our friends AND play games with them.
