Tamarack xc ski

Join us for a day of xc skiing at Tamarack Resort. Tamarack has 15km of trails groomed for skate and classic skiing. We will meet in Boise at 9 am to car pool. Depending on the road conditions we should arrive at Tamarack at about 11 am and we will ski for 3-4 hours.

 

Trail passes are $9 (or $5 if you have a Bogus Basin season pass). I have not skiied at Tamarack this year and they do not have a map on-line so the plan is to get there and look at the trail map and decide as a group where we want to ski. If the trail system is similiar to past years there is a wide range of options. 

 

I will call and check on the nordic conditions on Saturday.

Cross Country Ski

Ski around the Elkhorn Loop above Idaho City.  About a 6.5 mile trip with a 700' climb to the top of Banner Ridge then mostly level or downhill back to the parking lot.  With all the new snow last week, what is forecast for this week, and temperatures expected to be in the teens the conditions should be excellent.

Nordic Nites II

Come join Colls for an evening of Nordic Skiing under the gentle lights at Bogus Basin’s Nordic Ski Area on March 5th or 19th(easy/moderate). Great views of the Treasure Valley and uncluttered trails await you! At 5:30 pm we’ll depart the parking area near Moxi Java on Bogus Basin Road just north of Hill Road (in the shopping center area near the Bogus offices) and carpool up the hill. We should be on skis by 6:30 and can go until 8:30pm, when the Nordic Trail closes. We can break into groups depending on how fast some in the group wants to go. Downhillers are welcome, but they need to know we’ll only be there 2 hours. Bring water, a snack, your own warm gear (rentals are available), and some may find it helpful to have a headlamp (Colls prefers the natural light). If you don’t have a season pass, nightly passes are available for $8 at the Nordic Center. Please be on time so we can take advantage of the most time possible. Date may change based on Colls’ travel schedule, so it may be best to leave a message with her (853-5368) indicating your interest (that way she can call you back if she has to change dates. Assume we are good to go if you don’t hear from her).

First Ski Touring Trip of the Season

Dust off your cross-country touring skis and join us on the logging/mining roads north of Idaho City. We are hoping for fresh powder (snow is forecast) on the old base. We will ski the Elkhorn loop at the Banner Park-n-Ski if it is not too windy - our backups are one or both of the more protected Goldfork loops. We will be breaking trail (great practice for back-country touring). The terrain will be enjoyed by skiers with intermediate skills. Park-n-Ski passes can be purchased on the way in Idaho City for vehicles without them.
