Check out www.whitegrass.com for more background info.
Here’s our game plan:
-7:00 am Saturday 2/07 – Meet at the wall outside of Echols to gather gear and arrange carpools. I know that it is early, but it will be worth it.
-11:00 am – Meet at White Grass, WV (approx. 3 hour drive)
-11:30 am- Get some XC skiing time in at White Grass ($20 day pass if skiing, another $15 if you need to rent gear — note that we have a lot of XC skis that can be borrowed from the gear room), eat at the cafe or pack lunch.
-5:00 or 6:00 pm -Return to Cville in the evening.
What you need to bring:
-Warm, waterproof gear similar to what you’d wear while skiing or snowboarding. It will probably be pretty cold outside, but you’ll get warm, so aim for layers (thermal base layer, fleece, coat, wool socks, waterproof pants, hat, gloves). Bring an extra pair of gloves.
-XC skis if ya got ’em, otherwise the club has some and there are rentals.
-$$ for food and rentals
– at least 2L of water
$ 20 Dollars for the day pass. $15 if you are renting skis and extra if you want to buy food at the cafe.
