nordic ski tour: beaver creek trail (uintas) el-ntd

The WMC offers a beginner or 'refresher' day on cross-country skis. The tour is designed for those who are new to the sport, or for anyone who has been away from it for awhile and would like to give 'XC' a try again. Pick up skiing skills on a relatively flat, easy track away from the crowds and in the gentle part of the Uintas. The scenery is a plus too. Instruction will be provided as needed, and ski gear tips given if you are interested in joining some NTD- MOD Uinta Tours. We will plan to stop at Kamas Coffee for a gear check and warm beverage on the way in. Carpool rate is usually $5- $10 per person. There is also a $3 Mirror Lake Highway fee per vehicle if you do not have an annual pass. We will plan to meet in the Salt Lake Valley at 9:30 AM and be back by 4:30 PM. We will plan on 4 hours of skiing maximum. Participants can also return to the trailhead early. To register, volunteer to teach, discuss equipment and transportation, please contact organizer no later than December 29th (Also see 'Learn to Cross Country Ski' Clinic conducted by Jennifer Jackson, certified ski instructor and new WMC member/ organizer- listed for January 29, 2012).
