RETRO SKI FUN At Churning Rapids!
RSVP by Thursday noon please!
Join Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) and Keweenaw Land Trust (KLT) at Churning Rapids for some old time skiing. On the afternoon of Sunday February 1, 2015 between Noon and 3 PM skiers will gather at the Triangle, the touch point of Trails #3, #4 & #10 (trail map available at http://www.keweenawnordic.org/
If you are coming from Tomasi trailhead, most likely the section of trail on Tomasi Rd will be still be closed due to logging this year and you will need to use the bypass connecting the Pine Loop with the River Trail; be careful crossing that narrow bike bridge across Swedetown Creek.
There will be a fire and chili to warm you but no lavvu this year (What’s a lavvu? check out lavvu.com). Knickers, wool sweaters, wood skis and bamboo poles are not required but skiers are encouraged to use them if they have them. Skiing too will be the old way – breaking trail in the woods! Don’t let that discourage you, bring a friend or two – the more the merrier and less trail breaking to do! The backcountry tour will leave at 1:30 and participants will determine the length and difficulty of the tour. No fee but donations are appreciated and will be split evenly between the Keweenaw Cross Country Ski Endowment at the Keweenaw Community Foundation and KLT’s Land Stewardship Fund. A heads-up on numbers would be appreciated so there is enough chili for everyone. Please call Jay at 9o6.487-5411 to let him know the number of skiers in your party or to answer any questions.
