8:00 AM at Houghton P&R, 7024 116th Ave NE, Kirkland just off exit 17 to the east of 1-405.

Full directions will be sent to those who register. We can probably also arrange to meet up and carpool with participants living along the Highway 2 corridor or meet us at the Nordic Center about 9:30 am.

Depending on the conditions we find, we will explore many of the main green and blue trails offered by the Stevens Nordic Center from the Cascade Depot following Mill Creek to the foot of the Southern Cross and Jupiter chair lifts at the base of the Alpine ski area.

Conditions can vary depending on snow, temperature and how recently the trails have been groomed. Most Nordic trails should have been groomed overnight and most that are open should have classic tracks cut: they do a great job here! This is an N2 trip. There are some fairly steep climbs and descents and several trails have tight turns. The ability to herringbone up and use a wedge/snowplow position for descents and make left and right turns is required. This trip is not suitable for first time Nordic skiers - even those with Alpine experience

Trail Passes:  We will all need a Nordic Trails Day Pass available from the depot. The cost is $20 including sales tax ($5 reduction for seniors 70 and above).

 No Snopark Pass is required. Free parking is provided at Nordic Center.

Full trip details will be sent to all who register after the closure of registration.
