Details

 



This is a short ski tour and meant to be an introduction to x-c skiing but not on flat terrain or on a wide trail or road.  The trip goes gently up and down through trees and meadows.  The destination is a log next to the trail for our lunch stop..  It will take us about 1 hour and 30 minutes one-way.  So pack some sort of sitting pad.  Plan to fill your water bottle(s) with hot water before leaving home.  The trip back to the cars will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes.





This trip is sponsored by the RMOTHG, but is open to all CMC members.



 




Notes

 

 

For those who would like a bit more to eat, we'll offer an optional lunch stop in Bailey after the trip. The round-trip driving distance is 100 miles, so please bring $10 with you for your carpool driver.  We'll try to divide up the riders based on one's preference for a lunch stop in Bailey. 

Let me know of any medical issues via email. I will check my email the night before if anyone needs to cancel. I'll also send out any necessary weather details.

Check out the Denver Group website: CMCDenver.org.  It has more information than does the regular CMC website about the various activities of the Denver Group.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
