Hiawatha Late Sunday SkiSparks Skiklubb (2:00pm)
Welcome to Hiawatha Skiklubb!
We will take weekly attendance per MYSL request. Look for the check-in table next to the parking lot when you arrive and please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes early to get your skier(s) through the attendance process and into their level group.
All levels will begin at 2:00pm with small circle warm-up exercises by level. Then, Level 1 and Level 2 kids will ski for about an hour. Levels 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be out skiing for about an hour and a half.
Hiawatha Golf Course Ski Path Etiquette
Only skiers should be on the groomed ski trails. There is a hiking path on the inside of the trail for walkers and snowshoes. Sweepers who are not on skis (e.g., Level 1 caregivers) are welcome to walk with their groups and should do their best to stay on the hiking path.
Make sure you've purchased any necessary passes for your skier(s) and yourself prior to our first session. All ski passes can be purchased through the Loppet Foundation and they are digital again this year (so no need to pick up the physical pass at Wirth). If you are unsure about which type of pass to purchase, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will walk you through the options.
Wednesday Family Nights
Hiawatha SkiSparks members are invited to Wirth Park for Wednesday Family Nights. All skiers who plan to participate in sessions at Wirth Park - both youth and adults - will need to purchase an All-Access Pass from the Loppet Foundation.
We will also use Wednesday nights as backup opportunities should we have no snow or if we have to cancel a session due to weather.
Inclement Weather/No Snow
We will notify you on Thursday evening if we are considering canceling a session due to weather. We will not ski if the air temperature is below -2˚ F or the windchill is below -10˚ F. Cancellations will be posted on this webpage and notification sent via email by Saturday evening. Wednesday Family Nights can be used as make-up sessions.
Please do your best to help keep everyone in our club healthy and safe this winter:
- If your skier is feeling unwell, do not attend ski club.
- If your skier is currently under isolation or quarantine, do not attend ski club.
Face masks are required inside the Hiawatha Golf Course Clubhouse per Minneapolis Park Board regulations.
Bathrooms at Haiwatha
Please make sure all skiers have used the bathroom before ski club begins. We believe we will have clubhouse access this year, but it is always easier for kids and coaches if this has been taken care of before you arrive at Hiawatha.
