No Child Left Inside

Cross Country Ski Areas Association supports getting children outside in the winter to play and slide on snow. Many of our member cross country ski areas have specific programs for kids. Those programs are outlined on this page. Please contact the individual ski areas for more information. And go outside this winter to play with your children! It’s good for every body. To view CCSAA ski areas participating, go to our No Child Left Inside page.
