Midcoast Conservancy will begin its youth ski lease program with a fit session on Saturday, Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its Edgecomb office on Route 1. A second fitting session will be offered on Tuesday, Dec. 8 from 3 to 6 p.m.
Youth packages include skis, boots and poles; the lease period runs through the entire winter so that participants can take advantage of any snow at a moment’s notice! The season price is $70/individual; gear is available for skiers grades pre-K through 8th.
The ski lease will be “curbside” this year. As families arrive at the main office at 290 Rt. 1, Edgecomb, a volunteer will greet them in the parking lot. Families will be assigned a number based on the order they arrive. Parents will then be asked to stay in their vehicles and fill out the ski lease “order” form (child’s height, approximate boot size, etc.). The order will be fulfilled and brought back out to the vehicle. Participants will be able to try on boots outside or in their vehicle for appropriate fit. Parents are asked to please bring cash or check and a mask for themselves and their children. 2021- season passes/ memberships will also be available.
