We will meet on Wednesday January 20th at 9:00am at the Cabin Creek parking lot. You will need a Washington State SnoPark Pass with a Groomed Trail sticker for your vehicle.

Chris Ensor and myself will be co-leaders for this trip. We will first ski the road, a easy green to warm up. We will then ski Amabilis Mountain to the "Y" and take a short break for snacks and water. Then we will ski down and finish up with a lap around the Berg Course. The total trip will be app. 9.5 miles. This is a Nordic Advanced trip which will require that you can ascend and descend hills with herringbone and snowplow techniques. Amabilis Mountain  to the "Y" is 2.5 miles up and we will return back down the same way that we went up. On a Wednesday it's likely that all of the trails will be groomed. We will all stay together and ski as a group.
