Copper Country Ski Tigers

Introducing Youth to the Joy of Nordic Skiing

Give Now


Copper Country Ski Tigers is dedicated to introducing youth from Houghton and Keweenaw Counties to the joy of Nordic skiing in order to encourage a lifelong love of the sport and respect and appreciation for the outdoors.

Copper Country Ski Tigers provides young skiers (ages 5-18) with cross-country skiing instruction, fun on the snow and companionship. Everyone from first-time skiers to high school racers receives individual and age-appropriate instruction.


Ski Tigers emphasizes families skiing together and having fun.

Ski Tigers began in the early 1990’s as the dream of Beth and Russ Reid. Cross Country skiing was their passion and they wanted to share that passion with the local community and in the process create a ski community for area youth. Ski Tiger volunteers continue this dream with their commitment, generosity, and passion. Volunteers continue to be the heart of Ski Tigers. In fact, unlike many other youth organizations, EVERYONE involved is a volunteer.
