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.

Needs: good balance on skis, kick and glide at a moderate pace, snowplow, braking, stamina, and know how to ski up and down a hill.

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 ski mostly on Cabin Creeks intermediate trails (blue). However,  we will warm up on an easy trail, before moving  on to the intermediate trail system. If Mt. Ozbaldy is open for skiing, we will also ski it, a black diamond, challenging trail.

If you are taking your ski equipment out for the first time this year, please take a few moments at home before the trip to make sure that all of your gear is at hand and in working order.

We will car pool from the North Bend Safeway. All vehicles taken to the trailhead will require a PRE-purchased WA Snopark Pass  ($80– Special Groomed Trail Permit). SNO-Passes w/required "grooming sticker" can also be purchased at REI with a $4.00 extra fee. You will need to have your car license number with you when you go to purchase it.
