Hike Description:

A some-what annual tradition. Strap your skis on and get ready for a gourmet feast! We will ski from the closest access point we can drive to off Asarco Mine Road in Troy MT. Snow permitting we will ski up gentle elevation for several miles until we reach Spar Lake. There we will (hopefully) bask in the early spring sun and eat and drink. Then there will be the mostly downhill ski all the way back to the cars. The condition of the snow dictates how difficult this is. You need to be prepared for any conditions: from fresh snow, to lovely packed snowmobile trails to, well, ice…. We cannot guarantee the conditions, but we can guarantee a good time!

Bring plenty of food, water and extra layers, headlamp and spare batteries.

Difficulty level:  Strenuous                                                    Co-leader:  Mary Franzel

Event will be March 11th from 8am-6pm PST (9am-7pm MST)
