Details

This trip will begin at the Meadows Trailhead which is located about 1/4 mile before the turn off to Long Draw Road. We will ski the Meadows trail and cross Long Draw Road. Then continue on Old Long Draw Road until it merges with Long Draw Road. We will continue to the Trap Park Trailhead. At this point, depending on conditions and strength of the group, we will have to decide whether to try to ski into Trap Park. We will then return the same way.



I would encourage students from the beginning XC ski class to sign up. This will be a good trip to continue to hone your XC ski skills. Normal XC skis should be adequate for the trip. Should not need full skins, however, kicker skins may come in handy if parts of the trail are icy. If you have waxable skis, I very strongly encourage you to have kicker skins.
