Epic Ski-Tour Plans for this Season
I'd like to do 4 epic ski-tours this winter.
I'd be happy to have folks join me.
Here they are:
*Pigeon River (Shingle Mill Pathway and more)
*Jordan River Pathway
*Chandler Hills (with David S. as tour guide!)
I don't know when they will happen, however. I'm used to not knowing when I'll have good snow---but I suppose the weather up north in those locales will be reliable.
Come to think of it, the 3 tours up north could all be done in a long weekend. Epic!
I'm thinking mid-February. That will give me time to get in shape via day-skis down here. --Hopefully I can jump on a big dump or two down in Pinckney in January. That might line up well with RadNord's annual mid-January Poto Raid (or two!) See, a schedule is starting to shape up already!
Hmm, maybe the Mason Tract near Roscommon would be a good day-tour option for early January.
Then there's our trailer in Baldwin---blast the gas heat. I've never visited in full-on winter. The North Country Trail passes close by. I wonder what might be the best section to ski in that area. We did a fine autumn hike in there---kinda flat---yet still ridgey with enough undulation and hardwoods higher up with swaley swamps and creeks down low to make it nice.
