All this cold weather is cutting into our skiing and is making me antsy! I've been keen to ski on the new lit trails at Hyland, and now I'm hearing that the weather is predicted to improve some by Friday, so lets go!
Meet in the Hyland chalet at 6:30 PM on Friday 1/24. The plan is to be "skis down" around 6:45. We will break into groups based on skiing style (skate or classic). Then find a buddy or two to ski with, and we will meet up again back at the chalet after a loop or two.
A Three Rivers ski pass is required (a daily permit can be purchased for just $5 at the chalet) and parking is free. Classic and skate rentals are available. Please show up at least 15 minutes early if you are renting.
MEETING LOCATION: Highland Lake Park Chalet. South on Highway 100 past 494 then West at 1st Stoplight (W 84th St) which turns into E Bush Lake Road. Past the downhill & ski jump. Continue going on E Bush Lake Road (Keep going left) to the Highland Lake Park entrance which is about 3.2 miles from Highway 100. Take a left & chalet is about 1/2 mile with parking.
Make sure not to go to the downhill ski area or the Nature Center, but to the visitor center. Here is the corresponding web site: http://www.threeriversparks.org/parks/hyland-lake-park/hyland-visitor-center.aspx
Being a Friday night, an après-ski is in order! We could meet at Poor Richard's Commonhouse around 8:45 for some socializing (or another venue, if a better option presents itself).
