Sunday, 20 January 2013: Glenn Creek “Red Hot Mama” Roundtrip. Leader: Rourke Williams (457-1985). Meet 11 AM at UAF/CRREL Permafrost Tunnel parking lot off the New Steese before Fox. Intermediate level, 2.5 hours, rolling terrain with long climb up (if have skins, bring) through mixed forest, then rollicking descent back the way we came with the best woodsy turns anywhere. Usually cold as we climb out of inversion. Canines always welcome.
We will ski the flat trails that are groomed by the Alaska Skijoring and Pulk Association. Skate or classic skis can be used, but classics encouraged as this will be a social ski and I assume most participants will have classics. We’ll meet at 11:00 AM at the Farmhouse and can ski as far as our hearts desire. The primary goal of this tour will be fun and relaxation. Hot Chocolate & Cookies will be provided back at the Farmhouse Afterwards.
