SATURDAY, April 2, 2011 NEW TOUR: SCUM INVITATIONAL! “NORSK RIDGE” LOOP
Leader: Phil Marshall 457-3895
Meet at Weigh Station in Fox at 9:30 am.
Intermediate-advanced level, 5-6 hours. Carpool out to north side of Haystack Mountain. Ski north over old fire break, then steep, 400', curvy descent on narrow dogmushing/trapper trail (can remove skis and walk). Gently ascend north on a large fire break to gain classic “Norsk Ridge” that maintains high elevation with superb views in all directions. Enjoyable “old-style” mushing trail winds amongst the spruce that protect from the winds. If you never get to Norway, this trail is for you as it resembles those above Lillehammer, Norway, used on the Birkebeiner Rennet! This trail eventually connects with the White Mountain Trail that leads to Moose Creek Cabin. We'll ski most of the way out there then return the same way for a total loop of about fourteen miles.
