Harriet Hollister - Ski-O
[Rescheduled to 2/16]
Courses close 3:30
Courses: beginner/short, intermediate/medium, advanced/long. The difficulty designation applies to both skiing and navigational ability.
The beginner and intermediate courses will stick to the main ski trailsand avoid the steepest hills, while the advanced course may use any ofthe ski trails as well as short sections of the singletrack MTB trails.For the beginner course, the route choice is straightforward and thereare few navigational decisions (i.e. turns) on each leg. Forintermediate and advanced courses, route choice becomes more importantand there are more decision points. For the advanced course, the MTBtrails may not be traveled and can be difficult to see on the ground socareful map reading is needed.
Snow conditions: Check the ROC website (http://roc.us.orienteering.org)for any last-minute news and cancellations.
Plug: RXCSF members can check trail conditions at
https://rxcsf.org/conditions/. If you ever ski at Mendon, Durand,Webster, or Harriet Hollister and aren't an RXCSF member, please
consider joining! For less than the price of a one-day trail pass at
most XC areas you can access the latest groomer reports and
member-reported trail conditions for the whole winter season AND you
help support the fantastic grooming at these parks - the grooming is
paid for by RXCSF (not the parks) and RXCSF is entirely donation-supported.
There is a bathroom at HH now, but no building for waxing skis or getting warm so come with your skis prepared or be ready to do the preparation outside. We will have water and some snacks, but probably nothing warm as we don't have any power source. Please read Stina's course descriptions before choosing a course.
