We’re very excited to announce the launch of a new program for APUNSC! This year we are starting “The Groms”, designed to allow motivated young skiers in 4th through 6th grade, an opportunity to expand their skiing potential. The program will emphasize fun, developing a lifelong love of sliding on snow! By joining Groms, skiers will get to interact with other skiers from across the Anchorage bowl in a safe and friendly environment. Skiers will be coached by our professional staff of experienced coaches.
Grom (short for “Grommet”) originated in the surfing world meaning a young surfer. Now having evolved in the world of skiing, skiers and snowboarders liked it so much that now it also means a youngling on skis or a board.
The Groms program will launch November 2nd and run through the end of March.We are offering both a Monday/Wednesday option, and a Tuesday/Thursday option that will allow skiers to sign up for the complementary Jr. Nordic session and subsequently have 5 days a week (Monday-Thursday and Saturday) of skiing opportunity!
Monday and Wednesday 6:30-7:30 pm November 2, 2020 - March 31, 2021
Tuesday and Thursday 6:30-7:30 pm November 3, 2020 - April 1, 2021
The cost will be $750 for the full winter season. Locations will be as consistent as possible split between Kincaid and Hillside, but will potentially shift between venues (Hillside, Kincaid, or Russian Jack) to take advantage of the best available ski conditions.
