2018 Youth Ski Club Announcements

Last year, the Thunder Bay Trails Association (TBTA) was awarded $5500 from the Alpena County Youth and Recreation Fund to form a Youth Cross Country Ski Club for area youth ages 5-17. The TBTA requested funding for six instructional ski sessions on Sundays from January through March. Unfortunately, the mild winter and minimal snowfall, limited the sessions to five. The Alpena County Youth and Recreation Funds were used to pay the cost of the rental ski equipment. The response to the ski program was overwhelming as 46 kids registered and 39-50 kids and parents participated in each session. The Youth Cross Country Ski Club program introduced kids and families to a new healthy winter sport without having to make a large investment in equipment. The TBTA provided groomed ski trails at the Alpena APlex and Alpena Public Golf Course, volunteers to distribute the equipment, instructors, and snacks for the participants. Recently, the TBTA applied for the same Alpena County Youth and Recreation grant to continue the Youth Cross Country Ski Club in the winter of 2018.
