We will explore the groomed Cabin Creek trails from the Cabin Creek Snopark, exit 63 off I-90. There are about 10 miles of groomed trails, but conditions can vary depending snow, temperature and how recently the trails have been groomed. Trails include the Viking Course that involves hills. This trip is classified as an N2 as the hills on the Viking Course require the ability to herringbone up and use a wedge/snowplow position for descents. Nordic Classic no-wax skis recommended. Please consult the leader if you wish to use other types of ski. We will car pool from the Preston P&R; meeting at 8:30 am and all vehicles taken to the trailhead will require WA Snopark Passes. Day passes cannot be purchased at this snopark. Taking everyone who signs up will be dependent on enough drivers with suitable vehicles for winter snow conditions volunteering. Directions to Preston P&R; The Preston P&R; is off I-90, exit 22. If you're headed east on I-90, take exit 22. At the top of the off ramp turn left and cross over the freeway.
