Monday, December 3, 2018: 7:30 PM. Road Trip! An Opinionated Guide to Groomed Nordic Skiing Destinations in the Northwest. Even in poor snow years, there are many great Nordic Ski destinations nearby that have reliable snow and great trail systems. John Sarich’s presentation will help you plan your winter recreation by discussing many of our favorite cross-country ski areas and detailing the pros and cons of each. At 7:00, a new/prospective member orientation to the club and its activities will be presented. The general meeting with the featured presentation will start at 7:30. Volunteers will be present to hot wax your skis with fresh glide wax. (A modest donation to the club will be appreciated for this service.)
How many varieties of cross-country skis and boots can you name? How can you try them out? Come to the November 5, 2018 meeting (7:30 to 8:30 PM) to find out! Join club members and people from Yeager’s to consider skate skis, back-country skis, Hok skis, entry-level waxless skis and many others.
