The ski playground at Porcupine Ski Runners provides a fun place for skill development for our young skiers aged 4 years and up.
Following Cross Country Canada’s Introduction to Community Coaching Guide, the playground provides our youth a fun place to play and develop the basic skills for cross-country skiing, through a "natural learning" approach. The winter playground offers:
- ski slalom
- ski and hoops
- soft jump
- soccer field
- crazy carpet/toboggan run
- fire pit.
The playground project, which was completed during the summer of 2015, could not have been possible without the support of the PSR Board, the many volunteers – including Germain Lauzier, Rob White, Gerry Perreault, Ray Denis, Christine Dorion, Shawn Roy and Rhys Lucas – and sponsors (to date: Little John Enterprises, PolyFusion, Defined by Design, Fastenal, Service Master and C. D’Amours Contracting Ltd.).
