Saturday, Feb 6th: Mason Tract Point-to-Point Rendezvous
Join us in a point-to-point ski tour of our beloved local trail, the Mason Tract Pathway. This groomed (classic only) nine-mile, intermediate level trail winds along an undeveloped stretch of the AuSable River. The pristine landscape is beautiful, and skiing through it is a quintessential Northern Michigan experience.
Participants meet at XC Ski HQ at 8:30am for check-in, then depart at 9:00am to spot cars at the southern trailhead, and continue to the northern trailhead to begin the adventure! Skiers can rest and refuel halfway through, where lunch and a bonfire await. When finished, head back to XC Ski HQ for a celebratory beer or glass of wine.
Cost is $45, and includes car-spot service, bonfire and lunch on the trail, post-ski beer or wine, and commemorative shirt. This is an unassisted, unguided trip. Due to the technical and unpredictable conditions of this trail, only experienced skiers are permitted to join.
Reservations are required as space is limited – sign up at www.crosscountryski.com or call 800-832-2663. Lodging specials are available for participants at AuSable Riverview Resort, located on the main branch of the AuSable River.
