Free Moonrise/Sunset Ski event Friday

The Pagosa Nordic Club will host a Moonrise/Sunset Ski with soup and chili and campfire Friday, Feb. 26, at the West Fork Nordic Trailhead.

All abilities and ages are welcome. Cross-country ski trails will be groomed for beginner and intermediate skiers. Come out and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing under the colorful skies, and enjoy a bowl of soup or chili next to the campfire. Hot soup and chili and the stoked fire will be available from 5:30-8 p.m. in the parking lot.

The West Fork Nordic Trailhead is located 12 miles east of Pagosa Springs on U.S. 160. Look for the Bruce Spruce Sign 1/4 mile before Treasure Falls.

The Pagosa Nordic Club is a non-profit volunteer organization with a mission: “To enhance winter recreational opportunities in Pagosa Springs by maintaining accessible groomed winter trails for skate skiing, classic cross country skiing and snowshoeing for all ability levels and to encourage and promote the use of these winter trails through education, marketing and events.”
