Details

Due to hard packed snow and icy conditions we will modify this ski to hike/climb on Wednesday. Meet at Glen Alps parking lot at 6pm and we will hike False Omalley or Flat Top.

We tested out this flat top flyer ski the other day and it wasn't the safest, with some overflow ice, so we will adjust and hope for one final dusting of more snow!

A few of us are already planning on hiking tomorrow as a substitute. See ya tomorrow!

Join us for an evening ski from Flat Top (Glen Alps) Parking Lot to Service High School. This is a fast, fun, but challenging ski. There are some steep narrow sections, flat stretches, and sharp corners in the dark. Must be an intermediate skier and be able to snowplow with the best of them! Total one way distance is about 8+ miles and requires a 4WD carpool. Limited to 6 participants. 4WD participants will have preference if we are short vehicles. Hosted by Travis Taylor.

Date: First Wednesday of every month. January 8th, February 5th, March 5th, April 2nd.
