nordic ski tour: north fork of the provo (cancelled) - December 21, 2015

CANCELLED due to unexpected work obligation (Probable late morning replacement trip this Sunday (12/20) if weather cooperates- call to inquire). Cross-country (XC) 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 old yurt (site) ruins at the 3.0 mile mark. The long valley beyond this point offers great scenery to the 7.0 mile mark. 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 if you are a passenger. Also, there is a $6 Mirror Lake Highway fee if you don't have an annual pass/ Meet at 8:00 am for a prompt 8:15 am departure. NTD to MOD.
