Winter Activities 

Local Cross-Country Ski/Hike/Snowshoe

Watch our calendar for the dates and locations of these organized events.

Wonderful local parks offer a perfect way to get out and enjoy the season with friends and family.  Non-members are welcome!  We meet during January & February on an evening or weekend day. Depending on weather conditions we ski, snowshoe, or hike. Typically we meet apr├Ęs trail-time at a nearby restaurant or gather at the event leader's home for a potluck. No cost, except park entrance fees. Some of the parks do rent skis.   If needed, please call ahead and reserve them.  A great group of people take turns leading. Many thanks to all of them! If you'd like to host one, please contact coordinator Pat Marten.   Hope to see you on the trails! 

Not what you're looking for?  Information on multi-day cross-country or downhill skiing trips up north, out west, or farther abroad can be found here.
