nordic ski tour: iron mine mountain (uintas)

Cross-country (xc) ski tour follows the Soapstone Basin Road to the 3.0 mile mark. The 'kick & glide' gives way to moderate terrain leading up to the summit. Generally, lighter weight backcountry cambered skis (with scales or grip wax) is used (e.g. Fischer S-Bound 78 skis). Carpools may be arranged for separate return times if there is enough interest. Contact organizer if driving from the Park City area. Beacons are not required on this trip, but winter safety gear and headlamps are always advised. Remember to bring approximately $10 for the driver if you are a passenger. Also, there is a $6 Mirror Lake Highway fee if you don't have a car pass. Meet at 8:00 am for a prompt 8:15 am departure.
