The Ely Youth Ski League (EYSL) is a volunteer organization that offers children between the ages of 4 and 11 the opportunity to learn and enjoy cross country skiing. The program emphasizes fun and fitness as the primary elements of this family activity.
2021 Season Information: Due to COVID regulations and restrictions, we will not be having structured monthly sessions as a large group. Once skiers are registered they will have an assigned coach for their level and receive weekly check-ins, skills to work on, suggestions on trails to ski, and other fun communications. We will still plan some dress-up days and encourage skiers to post them on our League Facebook page. We will track kilometers and have prizes.
Families wishing to register should purchase a family membership to the Ely Nordic Ski Club on this website for $75; this covers the cost of trail grooming and maintenance at Hidden Valley and the Trezona Trail, plus rentals for any youth up to age 11 in the family who needs skis, poles, and boots. To receive rental equipment, you must print out a copy of proof of registration with the ENSC for the 2021 year and bring it to our equipment pick-up date.
Volunteers make EYSL and the Ely Nordic Ski Club happen and are always appreciated. If you are able to help on the leader board, coaching, with trail maintenance, or anything else, please let us know!
