Cross-country Ski - Nason Ridge


Cross-country Ski - Nason Ridge

Join me for an end-of-season, fairly strenuous xc trip (snow permitting!)

  • G-XC 3 Intermediate Groomed
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 14.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,500 ft
  • Pace: 2-3mph

Nason Ridge Sno-Park, geared up and ready to ski at 9am.

Solid classic technique and stamina required for this trip. Long sections of flat/gentle rise mean that the elevation gain is condensed and there are some black sections required to ascend (and descend from) the ridge. We'll take small breaks as needed but keep 2-3mph pace and target returning to the parking lot by 4pm.

Sno-park pass required for all vehicles.

Note that this is very late in a so-far sparse snow season. Expect frequent info updates/communication in the weeks ahead to assess whether we can go forward.

If the snow and weather conditions allow it, this is day one of two planned xc trips in the region (Stevens Pass Nordic Center the following day). Participants may be interested to consider staying at Stevens Lodge Fri and/or Sat night to help reduce drive times.
