nordic ski tour: north fork of the provo (uintas)

Cross-country ski tour follows rolling terrain through forest and past meadows and beaver ponds to the 2.5 mile mark. The 'kick & glide' gives way to moderately difficult terrain leading up the the old yurt (site) ruins at the 3.0 mile mark. The long valley beyond and scenery is a just reward. Generally, lighter weight backcountry touring gear (with swix or scales) is used. Carpools may be arranged for separate return times if there is enough interest. Contact organizer if driving from Park City. Beacons are not reqired on this trip. Winter safety gear and headlamps are advised. Meet at 8:00 am for a prompt 8:15 am departure. NTD to MOD.
