I'm scheduling this as a ~1.5 hour ski warmup before Eryn's 8 mile run that starts 2 hours later at Smoke Jumper Trailhead.
Location is flexible. Hillside Trailhead? Is it possible to skate ski from Smoke Jumper? I've never been there in the winter!
Also, if you're planning on doing this, are you planning to skate/classic? This will be good to know, since we'll likely be going different speeds.
