As leaders of SkiSparks programs we are very in tune with the weather.  Besides teaching kids how to ski, we also want to teach kids (and their parents) how to enjoy winter and be outside….even when its quite cold.  There are a lot of health benefits to being outside in the winter, but we need to do it safely of course (and all of you are experts at this!).

K Counter Instructions

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. 

MyXC Community Infrastructure Matching Grants

What: MyXC Community Infrastructure Matching Grants
Grant money can be used for grooming and snow making equipment that primarily supports nordic skiing. Building projects/upgrades are also allowed if nordic skiing is the primary use. Projects that are not entirely dedicated to nordic skiing may be funded at a lower level.

Who: MyXC Clubs
All MYSL clubs are eligible. Grants will be limited on a yearly cycle to $3000 total for all awardees. $1000 maximum per club.

Birkie Foundation and MYSL Partner to Provide Equipment Grants

The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF) has expanded their Skier Development Grants program to  include up to three matching grants (MYSL and ABSF both award up to $1000) for equipment for MYSL SkiSparks or Skiwerx Clubs. For more details and how to apply :


We are very happy to be working with the Birkie to expand the opportunities for youth skiing in the Midwest!
