We will ski along the CMC South Trail, practicing skills learned on the previous field days along the way, and going at a pace to accommodate the group and facilitate fun for all. We will have lunch at a stop along the trail, then return via the same route. Please review your pack for 10 essentials, particularly given winter conditions. This area is often quite windy and cold.  We will be skiing on metal-edged touring skis.  Dress accordingly, in layers. Remember water, lunch, snacks for the entire day.  Plan on a full day for the trip. 




Notes

Please plan join us after the ski for beverages and eats at an establishment in Nederland in celebration of your newly acquired ski skills!
