nordic ski tour: henrys fork - March 16, 2022

This is a 'trail-breaking' trip to prepare for the Kings Peak tour on March 26th. We will put in a track or pack down an existing track up the creek bed beyond the wilderness boundary up to Elkhorn Crossing. The opening just past Elkhorn Crossing gives a wonderful view of Kings Peak. This can be a stand-alone trip to experience the wonders of the creek bed tour section in a relaxed, no pressure environment. We generally pick a blue-bird day as an added bonus. The general plan is to meet at 5:45 am for a 6:00 am departure from Salt Lake City. The skiing will begin at approximately 9:30 am from the parking area and finish by 4:30 pm. Expect to be treated to a moon rise by the time we return to the vehicles. We would expect to be back in Salt Lake City by 7:30 or 8:00 pm. If the weather forecast looks unfavorable, we will shift the date by one or two days. If you would like to drive up and meet at the trailhead, call for directions from Mountain View, WY to the trailhead. Snowshoes OK.
