Report from Tour Leader Joel Young:

The Skarland tour went well! We had 7 folks total willing to brave the less than ideal conditions after the recent warming trend.

Fortunately temperatures were cool enough to make the low trails optimal while up high we had to deal with icier harder packed conditions. We were all thankful for the recent inch of snow Stan’s excellent grooming! The tour may not have been possible without it.

Some of us braved the long and icy downhills while others were able to use alternate  routes to avoid scraping out their skis. All of us made it through without injury!

Once back on campus we were able to enjoy softer snow conditions and make our individual ways back to the ski hut. Find attached a map of the route and some pictures along the way!
