Elementary Schools Ski Host Program

More in this category>> Programs | 0

Prior to the Friday, February 2, 2018 Larch Hills Elementary Schools Pirate Loppet, Larch Hills Nordics Society (LHNS) volunteers are keen to provide an opportunity for School District #83 elementary school students and their teachers to gain familiarity with the Larch Hills trails through the LHNS School Ski Host Program.

Up to three (3) skis sessions are available to each participating school class, usually one session per week.  We aim for about 10 students per Ski Host Volunteer

There is no charge for these sessions, but donations to the LHNS towards the maintenance of the Larch Hills trails and facilities are gratefully accepted. Donations may be sent to LHNS, Box 218 Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3 or deposited in the donation box at the top of the stairs by the Chalet. 

The School Ski Host Program began in January 2009. Students, Teachers and Larch Hills Volunteers have participated each January since 2009. In January 2017, 326 students from 8 local schools were hosted by 44 Larch Hills Nordics Volunteers for 914 student visits.
