MRE - Cross-country skiing

Trip type: 
Start date: 
Sunday, 22 September 2019 - 6:00am to 9:00pm

Sign up to this trip to do cross-country skiing on this year's Main Range Extravaganza.

We'll use our skis to put in some distance, take in some views, and bag some of the gentler peaks along the Main Range. While there will be steeper sections since we're high on the Main Range, the aim is to avoid these sections as much as possible which the AT skiers will be seeking out.

Considering the terrain, telemark skis are probably a good choice though NNN-BC is also fine for those comfortable with that gear.

Plan subject to change due to possible ice, bare ground, etc. along ridge tops.
