The Nature Connection Ski Day!
At almost 11,000 feet on top of the Grand Mesa, youth learn to fall and get back up again on XC skis — in return they ‘grow their grit’ and make lasting memories! Every 4th and 6th grader in Delta County and Olathe are introduced to cross-country skiing on the Grand Mesa each winter. We partner with the United States Forest Service to provide youth with an Every Kid in a Park pass for 4th graders as well as Junior Snow Ranger booklets. This full day program includes winter ecology and wildlife lessons as well as how to ‘dress like an onion’ while preparing for a day outdoors in the wintertime.
If we have space available in our schedule, we’d love to accommodate additional groups- either a fully-guided day on the Grand Mesa or through lending gear so that educators can lead their own program.
