8:45 AM at Preston P&R
We will explore the trail to Stampede Pass from the Crystal Springs Snopark, exit 62 off I-90. The route is mainly uphill after we cross the Iron Horse/John Wayne trail and we will descend by the same route. The trail is normally groomed for snowmobiles but the number of snowmobiles we encounter is likely to be small as this is a midweek trip. We will probably have lunch at Lizard Lake, just beyond Stampede Pass. Nordic Classic no-wax skis recommended. Please consult the leader if you wish to use other types of ski. Car pooling is suggested from the Preston P&R; 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; will be provided nearer the trip date.
