Report from the Skarland 12-Mile Ski Tour on February 11 by leader Joel Young

Great day to tour the full Skarland loop! There were 7 of us total. Stan groomed the course the evening before and temps were just right for superb classic ski conditions. Three of the crew hit the trail with good speed and once past Pearl Creek made a good push to stay ahead for the rest of the tour.

The rest of us took our time and soaked up the scenery and sunshine. Everyone made it down Thrill Hill and the Moose’s Schuss without a tumble, which is not always the case, but again conditions were just right!

Thanks to everyone who came out and look forward to leading again next year!

Note: There are new signs along the route that make the trail easier to follow if you want to explore independently! Check the Skarland & Pearl Creek Trail Users page on Facebook for grooming updates and support your local groomers!
