This is a "bumble ski" in that any one who feels like maybe they will have a little bumbling around while on cross-country/back country skis will be OK! The snow conditions may not be great by early April, but hopefully the weather will! be warm and sunny so who cares! Unless conditions require otherwise, we will plan to travel to the Brainard Lake area to ski a fairly flat trail (TBD) and hopefully stop at the CMC cabin in that area for a spot of tea, cocoa, or just chatting. Estimated mileage will be <5 mi, with a flat trail as much as reasonable. This is NOT a workshop, but geared for folks who may have taken Don and Eileen's excellent back country ski workshop and want to go on an easy trip where some bumbling will be expected. If you have recently purchased, or plan to purchase, end-of season skis and want to try them out, this might be a good venue! If you haven't XC skied in a decade or two and want to ease back in, also good! The leader and co-lead have little XC ski experience so you will not be alone. Register with leader.
