Local Cross-Country Ski Club

Do you want to introduce your kids to cross-country skiing and give them the opportunity to ski nearby with other kids their age? Eastern Mass Bill Koch (EMBK) Club is a local club dedicated to introducing kids to the joys of cross-country skiing and racing. The club is open to all children ages 7-13, from absolute beginners to experienced competitive skiers.

Kids train at the DCR’s Leo J. Martin Ski Track just across the Newton border in Weston. Children ski 1-3 days per week, depending on their experience from November until the last snow melts.
