Erling Stordahl (Crystal Springs)
We will explore the groomed Erling Stordahl trails and the east section of the John Wayne Trail and some of the dog sled trails from the Crystal Springs Snopark, exit 62 off I-90. Conditions can vary depending snow, temperature and how recently the trails have been groomed. Most of the trails are fairly flat but there are some sections that involve hills and therefore the ability to herringbone up and use a wedge/snowplow position for descents is required. Nordic Classic no-wax skis are recommended. Please note: the trails may or may not have been groomed recently. Please consult the leader if you wish to use other types of skis. Car pooling suggested from the Preston P&R meeting at 8:45 am and all vehicles taken to the trailhead will require WA Snopark Passes. Passes need to be purchased in advance: contact the leader for more information. Taking everyone who signs up will be dependent on enough drivers with suitable vehicles for winter snow conditions volunteering. Directions to Preston P&R will be provided nearer the date.
