Note of change for touring, Sunday, November 29, 2009 (contact: Aporn Stein 458-1011)
Due to lack of snow at Chena Flat, the tour is changed to Koponen trail (neighbor to the Chena Flat area). Meet at 11 am at the trail head on East Chena Hills road. From town to Chena Pump Rd. turn right to Roland Rd. to the stop sign, turn right to E. Chena Hills Rd. about a quarter mile, turn right on Kataya Ct.(the first Rd to the right). Park at the trail head. Keith Miller said that he will groom the trail for us before the tour. Many thanks to Keith.
Koponen trail is on private property, it was a homested site for agriculture. The trail is privately maintained. The trail follows the old farm road and around hay field. There is plenty of snow to ski on, somewhat gentle hills. We will ski for about 1.5 hour, about 4-5 miles, just enough to get skiers work out and get hungry for hot soup and snack at Aporn's home (1325 W Chena Hills Dr)
