We had 8 total participants including myself (Stan joined in just a bit after the start). Temps were cool enough with a fresh layer of snow to provide traction for our climbs and cushion for our descents! Stan provided some history regarding the trail and we managed to stay mostly upright and on course! A big thanks to everyone who attended and contributing to the fun that makes a group ski so awesome.

Attached are some photos usually taken during a rest after a good climb. Also attached is mileage of our route minus the first couple of miles (forgot to start the app). It should give you a good idea of where the trail goes.

Know that the Skarland Trail is alive and in great shape. Feel free to contact me if wanting to try it on your own and in need of some directions. I think everyone who skied today would agree it is a tour that is well worth your time!
