Cross-country ski Glen Alps to Prospect Heights

NOTE:  This ski necessitates a car shuttle - we'll leave some cars at Prospect Heights and carpool up to Glen Alps to start from there.  With the new snow I'd say 4WD/AWD is a good idea.

New snow!  Let's ski from the Glen Alps parking lot to the Powerline trail and head downhill either along the powerline or through the "daisy chain" loops adjacent to the powerline. What's great about this ski is that you can choose from a few "bail out" points for the downhill, since each of these loops intersects the Powerline. Depending on conditions and preferences we can ski the Powerline or through the mixed forest of Blueberry Hollow and connect to the South Fork of Campbell Creek trail. This area can get some wind, and hopefully the snow will be good earlier in the day before it gets too warm.

Those who want more of a workout can start at Prospect Heights and ski up and then back down and we'll intersect on the way down.

 

Bring: wind gear (face gaiter, glasses/goggles, shell/jacket) skis, poles, leg gaiters, water, and dress in non-cotton layers.

Dogs: Yep to well-behaved ones.

    Maria is this still on? It finally quit snowing but I'm not sure I can do this on classics with all this snow.

      I've done it before when it was really icy and had to walk one section, but made it all the way to Service High School. We should be good with classics today as long as we can keep the snow out of our boots :) Let me know if you need to barrow a set of gaiters...

      I'm gonna wuss out and ski groomed stuff today at Kincaid, then go to the Spay-ghetti event at the chalet. But if anyone want to do this after work on Monday or Tuesday when there are good tracks laid, I'm game!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
