Details

This mostly off-trail ski tour will be co-led by Eileen Edelman, and start at or near Ward's cabin in Gould, CO.  The actual route will depend on snow conditions, but will take place in the near vicinity.  This area is relatively flat, with a few gentle, rolling hills.  We will likely need to break trail, which the stronger skiers can take a part in.  The area is characterized by forest and meadows, and it offers great views of the Never Summer and Rawah Range peaks.  Moose are common in the area and often seen.  As an early-season ski tour, this is a good opportunity to practice basic kick and glide skills on cross country touring skis in a wilderness setting.  Lightweight cross-country touring skis are recommended.  Participants should be reasonably fit and possess basic, intermediate skills.   At the conclusion of the trip, we will have the opportunity to warm up at Ward's cabin and enjoy some refreshments.  Direct registration with the leader is required.  On-line signups are not permitted.
