Saturday Ski at Baker Park

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Lets meet at Baker at 11AM on Saturday and hit the trails!  The skiing should be terrific with some potential new snow on Thursday and a prediction for decent weather on Saturday.  For those who want to make a day of it, pack a lunch and we can meet in the chalet after a loop around the park, rest for a bit and then go for another round, if desired.  The chalet has a concession bar with hot beverages (including great hot chocolate), too.

Baker has about 14K/9M of trails groomed for both classic and skate, offering something for all skill levels. This is a Three Rivers Park, so $5 gets you a daily pass, season pass for $50. Rentals are available. IMPORTANT: The website may direct you to the wrong part of the park. Make sure you get yourself to the Baker National Golf Course/Ski Chalet. For info about the park, go to: http://www.threeriversparks.org/parks/baker-park.aspx For directions to the chalet, go to: http://www.threeriversparks.org/parks/baker-park/baker-national-golf-course.aspx

Directions from Minneapolis: Take I-394 west Continue onto US-12 W Continue onto Wayzata Blvd Turn right at Willow Dr N Turn left at County Rd 24 Take the 2nd right onto Parkview Dr Destination will be on the left. Check the website in the a.m. for changes due to weather and trail conditions.

    It was a nice day and location for skiing! Hoping to improve my balance on the downhills so there's less falling and more skiing on the next outing. :-)
