This is the first TENTATIVE meetup for the Beehive XC Ski & Snowshoe club! Meetups will be based on snowpack and trail conditions.
This first meetup will include a basic lesson in classic xc sking. You will need to bring your own skis, or rent from somewhere. Make sure if you rent, to ask for "classic" cross country skis (not skate skis - major difference!). We will ski up as far as we want, then head down.
Directions to Meetup: We will meet at the park and ride located at 3900 S Wasatch Blvd, Salt Lake City, UT and carpool to the trailhead. From I-215 S, take exit 4 for 3900 S and go
left. Turn left onto Wasatch Blvd, destination will be on the left. From I-215 E, take exit 4 toward 3900 S/3000 S. Stay to the left and turn left onto Wasatch Blvd, destination will be on the left once you pass 3900 S.
Directions to trailhead: End of Mill Creek Canyon Road, where the winter gate is. We will park there, and ski up the road. We will carpool up to the parking area as parking may be limited. Be aware that Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation employees collect the fee as you exit the canyon of $3.00/car. Annual passes are available through Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation by calling [masked], or you can purchase one as you leave the canyon.
XC skiing is a workout - bring snacks and water for afterwards. Dress in light layers. For a beginner's guide, look here: http://xcski.org/new_skier.php?SubPage=11
