Backcountry Ski Meet Up – February 24, 2024

February 24 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Interested in getting to know the Ward trails better?  Join GMNC staff and volunteers on Saturday, February 24 for a day of exploring the trails at Ward. We will be meeting at Ward Trailhead located at approximately mile marker 25 off of highway 65, and we will be skiing from 10AM-2PM approximately.

There will be two guided tours offered on this day.  The first will follow the “perimeter” trails at Ward and will be just under 11K in distance.  This option is recommended for intermediate to advanced skiers and will include a mix of groomed and marked, ungroomed trails.  The second tour will be just over 7K and will tour almost all groomed trails.  This option is recommended for advanced beginner skiers and beyond.  The terrain at Ward is hilly and the trails are more rustic in their snowmobile grooming with an elevation of around 9700-10,200 feet.  It is advised that participants are in good physical condition.

Participants will need to provide their own touring or backcountry skis and gear for this event.  Odin Recreation and Silent Country Cycle & Ski will be offering 50% off touring ski rentals for this day only with the mention of this event.  Participants should bring water, snacks to be had in the backcountry, and sunscreen.

Advance registration is not required.  Donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated, but not required.  Questions?  Email melissa@gmnc.org
