Ongoing Programs at Rikert Nordic
Mom Mondays: Monday Mornings are for Moms. This program is designed for Moms who would like to get out and ski with their child in a pulk. Our pulks, called KinderShuttle, made by Wilderness Engineering (www.wildernessengineering.com), allows families to recreate in the winter outdoors good, weather or bad! The KinderShuttle was designed with the outdoors in mind. Go in any weather. You don't need a babysitter to get out!
At Rikert, you can ski, rent a pulk and meet-up with other Moms who want do the same. We’ll ski for an hour or two. Rikert’s trail system is designed so we can easily loop back to the center. After our ski, enjoy a warm cup of soup. Skating or classical, all paces/speeds welcome.

Rikert’s new program is designed to get you and your child outside – skiing separately. Our Toddler Tuesday program teaches your child, aged 3-5, to learn to ski in a supportive and fun environment, with our Rikert instructors. Fun is the name of the game. If we aren’t skiing, we’ll sled or explore the woods. While your child is in their ski lesson, the parent is free to ski. Child must be potty trained. 1 hour program starts ... weather permitting, 12:30—1:30pm, includes child ski lesson & rental, snack break and parent-only ski time.
Child Lesson & Rental: $20 ($41.50 value); with Adult Trail Pass: $30; with Adult Trail Pass & Rental: $40
Our new Saturday morning program for 3.5 -5 year olds will introduce them to skiing and fun. We will begin January 5th at 10:15 and will finish about 11:00. Our shop has some real ski boots beginning with size 26. For those who would prefer, we have a few new sets of over -snowboot skis and bindings, great for the younger ones who may prefer to stay in their cozy snowboots.
The cost is $15.00 per session. To facilitate the beginning of each session, please be sure you have visited the restroom with your child so that, hopefully, we won't have to interrupt their fun ski to come back inside.
Please call ahead to reserve a space. 443-2744
