Stinchfield Loppet, ahoy! This Sunday, 10a.m.
Stinch is a great trail system with big hills and views. This will be a friendly no-drop/wait-up event with (byo) snack-stops. A chance to get to know Stinch w/o getting lost!
ADVANCED xc-skiing. Big hills, long climbs, with good run-outs. Challenging but safe.
Among the best skiing in the LP. Holds its own with the Vasa Trail.
You can get lost out here. But it's a good lost -- lasts 45 mins at most, I've found.
My plan is to ski along and hammer some uphills and sections and then wait up at intersections until everyone catches up and catches their breath and bearings. Then also stop for 2-3 longer snack-breaks at the better overviews. It'll take 2-3 hours. It's not a race or a hammerfest, but you will get sweaty and worked!
(Park at Professional Bldg just west of Nor. Terr. & Dext-Pinck intersection. Trail goes N across road.)
