2019-Feb-27 – Ski at a location to be announced
   
February is the prime cross country skiing month. A
lmost every trail system should have groomed snow, but some will be much better than others (as per trail conditions reports on CCSAM's website and the various club's/trail's websites).

The location decision will be made during the week leading up to this activity. At that time, detailed info will appear here. The weekly "activity reminder" email message sent to all Grey Hares will convey this. Probable locations are Sandilands, Pinawa, Agassiz Provincial Forest, and Pine Falls.
    
Trip rating: Intermediate or perhaps Novice to Advanced, depending on the choice of trail system, the choice of trails within that system, and the condition of the trails.
     
Contact Kevin & Anita Miller at k.a.miller@mts.net to register or if you have questions or comments. A confirmation email message will be sent as registrations are received, and another message with final info will be sent to all registrants on the Tuesday.
