Putney Ski Club Cross Country Ski Program

Putney Ski Club invites all interested youth skiers to join in the Bill Koch League (BKL) for the coming winter season.

The Putney BKL brings together kids from ages 5-14 to develop a love of the outdoors in winter through cross country skiing.

Early season plans include a Ski/Skate sale held at The Grammar School at Putney on December 4 at 3:15 p.m., a pizza dinner and practice at Grafton Ponds on December 9 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., and a presentation at the Rockingham Library on November 18 at 6 p.m. Interested families may get information about the BKL and sign up at any of these events.

Putney Ski Club has long been at the center of Nordic skiing in the US, with many Olympians starting out in our backyard. Last winter, Putney greatly expanded involvement in the team with over 40 skiers from at least seven different schools joining in the fun games, tours, and races that characterize the BKL.

For 30 years, the Putney Ski Club Bill Koch Nordic Ski program has introduced hundreds of area youth to cross country skiing and racing.

New for BKL practices this year will be a group to teach skiing to parents. Ski practices are held in Putney and Grafton, so the club is accessible to children throughout Windham County.
