Mike Forsyth is mentored leader.  Karen Pyle is co-leader.  Ehrling Stordahl has groomed trails, some with set track.   Expect 3-4 hours on the trail including a lunch stop.  Temps here are often near-freezing, so be sure to pack rain gear.  No cotton clothes, please.   Terrain is easy, but some ability with basic skills is needed.   Not suitable for those who have no cross-country skiing experience.   If you haven't recently skied on the equipment you plan to use, please contact leader to discuss.  Please email leader if unsure or any questions.
