Welcome to the Snow Dragons of Yinghua Academy!
We are a competitive cross-country ski team for students in grades 4-8 attending Yinghua Academy! Kids must be older 9 years old.

Cross-country ski racing is an exhilarating and exciting sport, but it is also challenging both technically and organizationally. Skiers joining Snow Dragons should have at least one season of on-snow experience. Families committing to the team will need to be ready to work together.- the MYSL's SkiSparks is a great program for beginners. 


  • At least one season of cross country ski experience
  • Be able to move and glide with fluidity in the classic technique
  • Be able to stay outside in sub-freezing temperatures for about 1 hr.
  • If these requirements are not met please contact the head coach for advise. 

    Administration and Fees
    This team is being offered through the Skiwerx program of the Minnesota Youth Ski League. The fee includes a racing license, race entries, coaching, as well as waxing support and some special visits entries. The Snow Dragons fee is already very economical compared to other programs (about half). Additional financial aid is available and parent commitment and volunteering is encouraged. 

    High-quality racing equipment that fits the skier is essential to a good racing experience. Equipment for both classic and skating is required. Rental of all necessary equipment for the year is available. Rental equipment is only available for skiers with shoe size under 42 EU and weight under 110 lbs. Larger skiers will have to provide their own equipment. 

    We also recommend keeping an eye on used gear on marketplaces and/or ski swaps. the 2022 ski swaps occur on the weekend of November 12-13 across the Twin Cities.
