The Salmo Snow Ghosts are getting ready for another season and are putting out the call for new members.

This is a great ski racing program for ages five to 13 that is team-based with  certified, technical coaching that helps kids become fast racers and safe, confident skiers in all types of snow.

Take part in regional and provincial races at local mountains in slalom, giant slalom, and a new development in child and youth ski racing, ski cross. The home base for the team is the Salmo Ski Hill, which is the place for night skiing and some nice powder cruising or fast groomer runs.

This a very affordable program at $187 and it is for all skill levels. This includes lift tickets for all regional races which are part of Nancy Greene Ski League and BC Alpine.

The team offers practice four times a week in a season that typically runs from late December to mid-March. Though it is not mandatory to attend all practices, this is a program that can offer an excellent opportunity to focus for the young skier. And Salmo is a half hour drive from Nelson, Trail, and Castlegar  offering decent access in a central location.

For information and registration contact Carrie at 250-357-9450 or carrie@papertrails.ca. The deadline for registration this season is December 31.
