The Pagosa Nordic Club is hosting the season’s last Sunset/Moonrise Soup and Chili X-C Ski Social Friday, March 2.
Join us between 4 and 7 p.m. at the West Fork trail head, located 15 miles east on U.S. 160 from Pagosa Springs, and enjoy a cross-country ski or showshoe under the sunset and moonrise.
We all meet back at the trailhead afterward for a campfire, hot soup and chili, hot cocoa and s’mores. This is a great family friendly activity. You can bring something to share, though it is not expected. We recommend bringing a headlamp or flashlight and that you dress warmly.
Currently, groomed cross-country ski trails for skate skiing and classic cross-country skiing are available at Alberta Park with 10k, compliments of Wolf Creek Ski Area; West Fork trailhead with 10k, compliments of the Pagosa Nordic Club; and Coyote Hill with 14k groomed, compliments of the Pagosa Ranger District. In addition, the Wolf Creek Trail Blazer snowmobile club grooms many miles of multi-use trails around the area.
As always, grooming reports can be viewed at PagosaNordic.Com.
