Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Canaan Valley, WV
We’ll head out Friday afternoon for Cannan Valley and get in a full day of cross country skiing on Saturday. I’ve never been there, but the trails are supposed to be great – over 30km of them. They have a lots of trails to choose from, including several that are great for beginners. You don’t need any skiing experience at all for this trip. We’ll camp out Friday night and come home after skiing on Saturday. With a good fire and plenty of layers we should be fine. Remember that you won’t be toasty though – it’s winter, and you’ll need lots of clothes to stay warm enough. We’ll come back Saturday evening, unless there’s a car of people who want to see a second day.
The club has some older cross country skis, but we’ll probably need to rent some. The rental fee is $17 for the full day, and there are no trail fees. Plan on being able to pay the 17 dollars, but it could be lower if we do use some club skis.
You bring: TONS of layers – warm hat, gloves, scarf, fleeces, outer shell, wool socks, ski/waterproof pants, lots of synthetic stuff. You don’t want to be cold all day/night. Also bring water bottles, small daypack, camping gear if you have it, money for ski rentals and for dinner Friday.
Club Provides: gas, camping fees, all meals Saturday, camping gear (sleeping bag, pad, tent, stove), good times, great people, great deal…
