You are invited to join a group planning on skiing around Silent Lake in the provincial park by the same name this Sunday. The distance is 16.5km and the trail is moderate in difficulty with hills and turns. The trail is usually groomed and track set but due to equipment failure this has not been done since February 11th. However, park staff advise that it should still be in good shape and that quite a few skiers have been out on it this week.
There is a warm up hut with a wood stove at the 10km point where we can stop for lunch. Dress in layers, bring lots of fluids, lunch and snacks. There is a heated comfort station at the day use parking lot so you may want to also bring a change of clothes for the ride home.
The fee for a parking pass is $17 per vehicle. If you wish to carpool, please indicate this in your comments.
For those you want to come out but want to a shorter ski or to snowshoe, that’s certainly an option but you will need to organize your group.
Date: Sunday, February 16th
Start Time: 10:00
Meeting Location: parking lot of day use area, Silent Lake Provincial Park
Ski Organizer: Maria Siemiaszko
