"Lunch Break" Intermediate XC Ski cross train

Please Note; this is a combined event between the BACE and Bend Adventure Group Meetups.  If one is full, check the other for available spots!

With all the fresh powder, doesn't it seem like any day not in the snow is a wasted opportunity?  Let's take advantage with at "lunch break" ski from Swampy Sno-Park.....

This will be an intermediate cross training ski from the Swampy Parking lot.  Conditions permitting, we'll head up the Swampy Loop, join the Ridge Trail to the Flagline Connector, and then take Flagline back to join the Swampy Loop (just before Swampy Shelter).  A total of approximately 5.6 miles.   We will stop briefly at Swampy Shelter.  We may be breaking trail for much of the ski.

This training ski is for skiers comfortable climbing up and skiing down moderate hills.  With all this new powder, I expect we will have great conditions. 

The Ridge Loop trail adds a bit of variety and mileage to the Swampy Loop and is much less traveled.  Please be sure to pack warm clothes, snacks and to breathe back into your hydropak so that your water doesn't freeze or bring a water bottle.

Drivers parking at Swampy Sno-Park must have a sno-park pass.  Please try to carpool from Safeway at 10:30 if possible to lessen congestion on the highway and parking areas.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
