We are committed to improving the health and well-being of Indigenous youth through the transformative power of cross-country skiing, sport and play.

Our community-led programs get participants on skis to empower them with physical activity and lifelong wellness. Cross-country skiing inspires meaningful change and, most importantly, connects youth to their own strength and potential.

We work in more than 50 Indigenous communities across Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and reach more than 8,000 youth every year.
