Baker Park Youth Ski Club
Schedule and location
Our club will meet Sundays in January and February at Baker Park Reserve in Medina from 2:00 to 3:30 pm. We gather in the back meeting room in Baker’s Chalet. Baker Park Reserve website:http://www.threeriversparks.org/activities/cross-country-skiing.aspx
Weather and cancellation policy
We will meet each week, regardless of snow conditions. Fortunately, Baker is one of the best metro locations for skiable snow.
We will email you if our session is cancelled because of cold temperatures.
Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately with the understanding that the chalet is always open for a cold skier. Appropriate dressing for active sports like cross country skiing means several thin or medium insulating layers, and a wind shell, not heavy winter coats.
Rental equipment is available at the ski chalet, but come early because the equipment is rented on a first-come-first-served basis. If weather conditions warrant, Three Rivers Parks may not rent equipment on certain days.
We believe waxable skis are ultimately more fun because of better glide. But for most newer skiers, especially younger ones, waxless skis may be more convenient and more enjoyable. If you are considering new skis for an advanced skier, we recommend classic skis for both striding and skating because of their range of use and flexibility. Skating skis are very rigid for young, light skiers, performing poorly in soft to medium packed snow.
This is a volunteer organization, so we need you! Please sign up to volunteer at https://mysl.org/volunteer.
If you are the parent of a skier in Level 1, we ask you to accompany your skier on snow at all times, either on or off skis.
