The Orono ski program is open to kids who live in any town or school district. It is not affiliated with any school or town, just PVSC. The program is for kids in grades 4-8, and will meet several days per week. No cross-country skiing experience is necessary, and all skiers will have race opportunities.
Cross-country ski leasing for kids in grade 8 and younger is available through the Outdoor Sport Institute (formerly Maine Winter Sports Center). The ski lease program provides xc skis, boots, poles, and a ski bag for the entire season for $65. Check with your local Parks and Recreation office (Orono, Bangor, Old Town) to find out details of the ski rental program. Typically, orders are collected in mid-November.
