Local youth ages 6 to 15 can sign up through Jan. 7 to learn how to ski or snowboard. Trailbusters will travel to Steamboat Springs for five Saturdays starting Jan. 19 (excluding Feb. 16).

The ski and snowboard lessons cost $250, with an additional $45 covering the five bus trips to Steamboat. A $31 lift ticket also will need to be purchased for each week.
Craig Parks and Recreation is now also accepting registrations for membership to the Ski Club. The club is for anyone to join and costs $10.

Water aerobics set for winter
Craig residents looking to get a different style of exercise are in luck.
Water aerobics courses, which began Oct. 22 and run through Jan. 16, offer a good combination of exercise benefits, improving fitness and flexibility while also being easier on the joints than other forms of exercise.
Classes are Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-8 p.m. at Moffat County High School. The fee to drop-in for a class is $4.
While the current session is winding down its final few weeks, another session beginning the following week is open for registration. Classes will be the same days and time each week, beginning Jan. 21.
The coming session runs through March 27 and costs $50 to register. It is also an option to pay $4 to walk in to any class.
For more information, call 826-2017.
Registration for K-2 hoops closing soon
Youth basketball leagues for boys and girls from kindergarten through second grade are accepting registrations for the leagues, which start in February.
There is potential for six leagues, depending on the number of participants, which will play games on weeknight evenings. Boys leagues will play Mondays and Wednesdays while girls will play Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The league will focus on teaching players the basics: dribbling, passing, shooting and learning to play as part of a team.
Practices start Feb. 11. Anyone registering after Jan. 9 will be placed on a waitlist with no guarantee of being put on a team.
League fees are $30. For more information, call Parks and Rec at 826-2004.
