Saturday January 7 - let's do an X-C ski tour at Cumbres Pass.  We will ski 8 miles roundtrip from Cumbres Pass to the Flat Mountain yurt and back.  There is 1100 ft of elevation gain one way.

This is a kick/glide tour with some low angle (<25 degree slope) telemark turns possible.  Because it is not on a groomed track, metal edged cross country touring skis are required.  (Track skis and AT gear do not work well in these off-track, rolling hills terrain).  

We will leave Los Alamos at 7 am (days are short!).  Meeting location will be sent to participants.  We can coordinate with folks coming from Santa Fe or Pagosa Springs.

Let Jean know if you can come ( and if you are able to carpool.  Hope you can come.
