Today was our first trek up to Nickle Plate Nordic Centre for this winter season and my children were very excited to ski. We have been cross country skiing as a family for about six years now and every year, as our children grow, it becomes a little easier. When we arrived at Nickle Plate we were all giddy with the excitement of skiing on sparkly snow. My two older children (now almost eight and six) were able to ski two longer loops and even managed to climb some challenging hills without much complaint. Our youngest tried skiing for the first time but spent most of his afternoon enjoying the comfort of the Chariot.
We plan on being regular visitors of Nickle Plate this winter. Our children will be taking ski lessons here throughout from December to February and I recently purchased a pair of skate skis that I will be learning how to use. I am already looking forward to our next day of winter wonderland.
