JacksonXC at 10:00 am One way down the Ellis

Thursday, January 17, 2019

It’s groomed, it has been superb, excellent, awesome, epic. Let’s do the One Way Down the Ellis from Rocky Branch.

This is a good trip on a cold day. We will carpool up to the Rocky Branch and ski down from there. A slight up on the Hall brings us to the Kellogg which is an excellent downhill on excellent snow.
The snow has excellent glide and we will need a few double poles and will have an excellent cruise down the tracks.

Did I say excellent enough???

Lets meet at 10:00 at the lodge.
Dress warmly, a balaclava or face coverage by a scarf or neck-up is a good idea!

JacksomXC 10:00 am

Thursday, January 10, 2019

A report from some intrepid BC skiers (Barb and Bill) after their expedition today indicated to me that we are much better off staying on the groomed surfaces for tomorrow's ski. The snow was heavy and slick, hard to control on any downslope. The day looks cloudy with snow flurries, so we will be much better off enjoying the freshly groomed trails. Let's ski at Jackson.

Meet in the Lodge, ready to ski at 10:00 am. If the Keeney Loop is ready for us, that will be the first choice!

Great Glen, 10:00 am, $5 with a Jackson Pass

Thursday, December 27, 2018

Susie skied Great Glen today and was amazed at how good it was. Tracks for classic and skate. Her report indicates that we would have a good time on skis up there. Prospect Farm at Jackson is also good, but I don't want to deal with the parking issues on the holiday week.

Let's do Great Glen again for the $5 deal with a Jackson pass. Bring skate or classic skis. If you want to try skating you can borrow my skate skis to try them on the flat trails -- you will need SNS boots to fit the bindings. The tubing hill is closed, so you do not have to fear that we might have to do that once again.

Meet at Great Glen, lower level, at 10:00 am.

If you want to carpool:  Meet in the Jackson parking lot, across from the J-Town Deli, at 9:20 am. Otherwise, see you up there!

Let's go there and enjoy the $5 deal with a Jackson or Bretton Woods Nordic Season's Pass. This deal expires on Dec 31. Let's get that powder before the rain comes in on Friday!

Meet at the lower level of the main lodge at Great Glen at 10:00, Ready to Ski. Get your day pass there for the deal, don't forget to bring your JacksonXC season's pass and $5.

Carpool? If you like, meet in the JacksonXC parking lot across the street from the J-Town Deli at 9:20 am. Otherwise, see you at Great Glen!

The XC skiing has been excellent for a month. Amazing! It is still autumn!!

Let's go up to Bretton Woods and take advantage of the pre-season $5 deal: bring your Jackson Pass and skiing will be just $5 (this deal is good until Dec 31).

Most everything is groomed up there, except for the Mountain Road Epic - we will do that another time.

Meet at the Bretton Woods XC Ski Lodge at 10:00 am. We will boot up, get passes there and head out for a circumnavigation of the trail system. Bring snacks or lunch, we might eat on route at the yurt/cabin. A hot beverage in a thermos is so very nice!

For carpooling: Meet at the far end of the Attitash parking lot, west of the lift area, at 9:25 am if you want to carpool, otherwise see you at Bretton Woods!

Here is the deal, copied from the JacksonXC website:
