Nordic Kids COVID-19 Planning

Spokane Nordic Ski Association and the Nordic Kids program directors will default to Washington State, Spokane County, and State Park guidance on whether we are able to safely run our program this year.  We will at the very minimum adhere to the Washington State ‘Phase’ approach.

We genuinely appreciate your patience as we all attempt to navigate these difficult times.

 

Decision Timeline
  • SNSA Board members approve plan no later than Nov 15th, 2021. The decision will be based on what phase Spokane County is in at the time of the decision.

  • The website will be able to enroll participants no later than December 1st, 2021.

 

Assumptions:
  • Grooming is active.

    • If grooming is not active we’ll promote family-based outdoor activities.

  • Washington State Parks will allow limited to no lodge access for all or part of the scheduled Nordic Kids Season.

    • Lodge warming is an essential part of the Nordic Kids program and if we can’t offer the lodge as a refuge in times of inclement weather, then the Nordic Kids program cannot run effectively.
