Glide through the trees along the CMC South Trail. Relax in the snug CMC cabin, then return by the more exciting Waldrop Trail. Participants of the Glacier & Whitefish Ski & Snowshoe adventure will be allowed to sign up first with a password. If space allows, it may be opened up to other CMC members. 

We will be skiing on metal-edged touring skis.  Please review your pack for 10 essentials, particularly given winter conditions. This area is often quite windy and cold.  Dress accordingly, in layers. The trailhead sits at over 10,000'. We will have an elevation gain of approximately 650'.  Remember water, lunch, snacks for the entire day.  Plan on a full day for the trip.

There are restrooms at the trailhead. Please volunteer to drive if your vehicle has AWD or 4WD.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
