First ski tour was a chilly success!

The ski club held its second tour on Saturday, January 4th even though the temperatures were around -6 degrees F!   It was a frosty cold start with a hardy crew of skiers.  Two people on the trip had never been skiing on a CERNSC tour or even been to the Peters Creek Trailhead, but they enjoyed seeing a new area and did extremely well. 

 

Barb and Steve Johnson led the 6-mile round trip ski tour and everyone who attended seemed to have a good time.  The snow was a bit thin for the first mile and a few rocks were still showing.  The steep hill before the gate was also challenging due to overflow causing glaciation.  Most of us took off skis and walked this section. 

 

After the first gate, however, the snow was excellent and the glide was much better than expected for such a cold day. It was a nice time to be out on the trails and it was absolutely beautiful.

 

Everyone made it back safely with no concerns due to the cold weather. Let’s hope there will be more snow and slightly warmer temperatures for the next tour which is scheduled for Sunday, February 9th at the Eagle River Nature Center starting at 12:45.  Ros Singleton, the ski tour coordinator will be leading this trip.  Come join other ski club members because its always a fun adventure!
