Posted March 4
Let's meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Wooly Mammoth lot "BB" across from the Conoco.
Remember: The daylight savings time "spring forward" is happening. Don't forget to change your clock ahead by one hour!
Please post below to arrange carpools to the Wooly Mammoth lot if you want.
I have been wanting to try skate skiing, so I was thinking of going up to Snow Mountain and getting the adult learn to ski package with an hour-long lesson at 10:30 and then skiing afterwards. You can choose whatever kind of skiing you want to do, and you don't have to take the lesson. We could stop for food somewhere on the way back.
The 7:30 start time is for when we'd meet to carpool up to the Winter Park area of course, and I'm flexible on this as well. I just thought it would give us plenty of time to make it to the lesson.
Snow Mountain Ranch's Nordic Center has more than 100 kilometers of trails.
Post below to arrange carpools.
