With the warmer weather and lack of snow recently, we are aiming to get out early for best conditions and to give you back the balance of the day. Cheryl and I have some suggested options based on the Nordic Pulse grooming report.

We will pick our ski route when we get there to get the best conditions with an expectation of 12km or more.

You must be comfortable climbing and descending moderate hills.

Since West Bragg Creek is so close there won't be a carpool. We will meet at the trail sign at the warming hut located at the west side of the parking lot. I will be in a Red Swix jacket and Cheryl will be in a skirt.

This event is for strong beginners to intermediate skiers

We can have picnic lunch at the warming hut afterwards if there is interest.
