Nordic Rocks for Retail Stores Program

The Nordic Rocks for Retail Stores program was developed to form a connecting bond between schools, parks, clubs, and retail stores that will foster a culture of skiing in every community throughout the country.

Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC) is expanding the Nordic Rocks Program to include Nordic retailers. The Nordic Rocks equipment is now available for purchase from local ski shops and sports stores, at a very affordable price point, to help introduce families and communities to the benefits of cross country skiing in settings other than their local schools, - such as their own back yard, parks, and area ski trails.

Several Midwest ski shops are now carrying Nordic Rocks ski packages. We would like to invite you to collaborate with us in our efforts to grow the sport of cross country skiing with a new generation.

The Nordic Rocks Universal Ski Package is a touring equipment designed specifically for children (6-15 years old) and adults who are new to skiing. The package includes 120 cm or 160 cm wood-core skis with fish-scales, and a snowshoe style step-in binding system with three spring buckles that fits any size boot or shoe, and adjustable aluminum poles (90-130 cm); plus, "ski clips" for holding skis and poles securely together and a Nordic Rocks identification tag.

The Nordic Rocks package is a great introductory level set-up for new and beginning skiers; it includes skis, poles, storage clips, and a name tag. The Nordic Rocks package allows families to try the sport, and get excited about the next level of skiing at a very affordable price.
