 BY REGISTERING THIS LEADER CONSIDERS YOU MADE A COMMITMENT TO THE TRIP. It's only good form to cancel in the event of an injury, illness or an emergency. Even if there are people on the wait list it's often difficult to move them up close to the trip date. THANK YOU!

Depending on conditions, we might require some vehicles with AWD/4WD and/or tire chains to enable us all to carpool from our North Bend meeting place to the trailhead. The leader will invite volunteer drivers from within the group to come forward once registration is closed.

Ski Ability Level: N2 Advanced Basic

We will ski approximately 4-5 hours, and cover approximately 9+ miles at a moderate pace.  This is not a beginner ski trip due to our moderate pace.

To participate you need to be able to: balance on skis, kick and glide at a moderate pace, snowplow, brake, have stamina, and know how to ski up and down a hill including negotiating turns on a narrow trail.

If you are uncertain of your ability and stamina to manage this type of trip in the expected conditions I have described, above please contact me to discuss further.

We will mostly ski on Cabin Creeks intermediate trails (blue). However, we will warm up on one or two easy trails (green), before moving on to the intermediate trail system.

If it has been a while since you’ve used your skis or you have a new set of equipment, please take a few moments before the date of the trip to make sure that all of your gear is at hand and in working order.

We will carpool from the North Bend Safeway. All vehicles taken to the trailhead will require a WA State Snopark pass with groomed sticker

Full trip information will be emailed out to those who sign up as soon as registration closes on Jan. 27.  In the interim. any questions can be emailed to the trip leader Chris Ensor ctrails@comcast.net
