This has been cross posted in two other groups so far with a total of 10 Meetuper attending

Join us as we go cross country skiing at night. The trail will be  illuminated by lantern and the full moon.

All skills level are welcome. I have never been cross country skiing before. So this will be an adventure for me.

This will be cancelled if we don't have enough snow.  But that doesn't look like it will be a problem.

Rentals: Full Package Ski, Boots, and Poles are $14

Rental are Available onsite

We will have dinner/drinks afterwards at a local restaurant
