  • Cross-country Skiing
  • Adults
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

Meet at: Cabin Creek Sno Park

Plan on meeting in the morning and return in the evening.

XC Skis are first come, first serve. Let Katy know by Dec 3 if you want skis. We only have a few kid sizes, but should have enough adult skis. If we do not have skis that fit you, you'll have to rent them for the day from REI or another vendor.

If the trails at Cabin Creek don't have good snow conditions, we'll go snowshoeing or hiking as a backup.

Trip sheet will be posted within two weeks prior to the trip.
