The Berkshire Trails Bill Koch Ski Club aims to make Nordic skiing fun for kids and their families. We gather on Sunday afternoons from January through early March to learn new skills and enjoy the crisp winter weather and beautiful landscape of Notchview, a property of The Trustees, in Windsor, Massachusetts.
Our club includes nearly 100 kids, who range in age from 5 to 14 years old. Volunteer coaches lead groups of skiers in group lessons on Notchview’s 25 miles of groomed ski trails. Young skiers begin with the basics of classic skiing. As they grow older and stronger, our skiers are challenged to try skate skiing, and some even choose to compete in regional races.
Skiers are grouped by age and ability. Children in the five year old group and the 6 year old beginners are lollipoppers. Children in this age group need a parent/adult skiing with them.
