Cross Country Skiing Group
Wednesdays | December 13, 2023 – March 27, 2024
Cross country skiing with designated leader, info provided for trail difficulty, distance, and elevation gain. Easy-moderate & a couple of upper level backcountry trails on Wednesdays. The meeting time for carpooling (recommended) to the trailhead is always 9:30 AM. A weekly email is sent out with tour details. Roundtrip distances are usually 3-6 miles with an elevation gain of roughly 300-800 feet. Outings are suitable for all levels of skiers who have mastered snowplow and herringbone skills. You will need backcountry skis with metal edges and fish scales, or know how to wax and/or bring skins. After some outings, a volunteer host will provide light appetizers, hearty soups, dessert and beverages in her home (a $10 donation is recommended). Contact the host by Monday noon for a reservation and headcount, as all lunches are limited in number and skiers are the priority. This year we are fortunate to have eight hostesses and seven restaurants lined up. We also have a few new trails this year and our awesome leaders are all coming back to help out.
