Jackrabbit Ski League

Notice – The Jackrabbit Ski League is now full for the 2016-2017 season. We are no longer taking registrations for the program.

Jackrabbit Ski League at Telemark Nordic

Welcome to the 2016-17 winter season.  Your little Jackrabbit will love to ski with friends under the supervision of our professionally trained volunteer coaches and coaching assistants.


In our programs your Jackrabbit will learn balance, coordination, cooperation, timing, and fun on snow.


Our goal: “ski for life.”  With that in mind our emphasis is about having lots of fun, while at the same time teaching them skills and techniques to become life long learners.


You will appreciate the time and effort our volunteer coaching staff puts in, as they are all parents too.

Our coaches have attended one or more of Cross Country Canada’s amazing coaching program, provided free to all Telemark Coaches.  They also enjoy continued skills development provided by Telemark’s Head Coach  Adam Elliot.


Please note that the Jack Rabbit Ski League Program relies on volunteers to run, so parents must commit to helping ro helping out in one of our volunteer oppurtunities throught the season. Oppurtunities are volunteer coach, coach assistant, group assistant, hot chocolate attendant, or fun event helper for Bunnies, Jackrabbits and Adventurers.

Ski Rental Special Rates

We understand your Jackrabbit grows fast.  To help we have an annual SKI SWAP held the last Sunday of October  every year. We also have a rental program for all Jackrabbits skiing at Telemark. The rentals purchased are for the lessons only, and if you come to ski on other days you will have to pay the normal rental rates. If you rent under this program the skis are only for Ski League lessons and not for sessions of other programs like Racing and Biathlon. You can also rent equipment for the ski league lessons each time you come, but you must pay at the office before the rental skis will be handed out.

Program Season Rental rate
Bunnies and JR 1 $59
JR 2 – Adventurers $84
