Hiawatha Golf Course Ski Path Etiquette

The folks who groom the trails at Hiawatha work really hard to maintain our beautiful course. We need to do our part to respect the trials. Only skiers should be on the groomed ski trails. There is a hiking path on the inside of the trail for walkers. Sweepers and coaches who are not on skis are fine to walk with their groups, but they should do their best to stay on the hiking path.

*Equipment Rentals
Equipment rentals are all taken.  If you need equipment Play-It-Again sports can be a good source for used skis, poles, and boots.  They are not a ski shop though so staff knowledge on fit may be limited.  You should go in knowing what you are looking for.  New equipment can be purchased at REI, Hoigaards, and Finn Sisu just to name a few.

*Ski Passes
Make sure you've purchased any necessary passes prior to our first session. All ski passes can be purchased through the Loppet Foundation.  

No pass needed
Youth skiers (11 and under)
Adult volunteers who will not be on skis

Skiers (12 and over)
Adult skiing volunteers

All skiers (youth and adult) who plan to ski on snowmaking/lighted trails at Theodore Wirth Park.

Inclement Weather

We will notify you Wednesday evening if we are considering canceling a session due to weather, and email you a final decision by Friday evening.

Please do your best to help keep everyone in our club healthy and safe this winter.
If your skier is feeling unwell, do not attend ski club.
If your skier is currently under quarantine, do not attend ski club.

Bathrooms at Haiwatha
Please make sure all skiers have used the bathroom before ski club begins. We believe we will have clubhouse access this year, but it is always easier for kids and coaches if this has been taken care of before you arrive at Hiawatha.

Water and Snacks
Cross-country skiing burns a lot of calories, and your skiers will likely be hungry and thirsty when they are done for the day. We do not plan to provide snacks this year. Please make sure your child has eaten before coming to ski club, and bring water and/or snacks for your skier when you pick them up.
