I’m not sure if there are any cross country skiers here, but thought I’d create a thread and find out.
I have not skied at all in the last decade as a result of traveling a LOT for work. Having resigned that position, I’m now home all the time and with the Pandemic, looking for outdoor activities. With the cycling season over (except for a small handful of diehards) I’ve decided to get out the skis.
I used to work in Park City and regularly skied the golf course and “the farm”, as well as the trails in Round Valley. I skied Mountain Dell for years, but I doubt there is enough snow there now.
When my son was young and participated in the Tuna youth program, I skied the road in upper Millcreek, as well as a groomed area near Little Cottonwood Creek at Alta. I think someone may be occasionally grooming the road to Big Mountain as well, but have never skied there.
The Mirror Lake Highway and of course Soldier Hollow are great places to ski, but I’m focused now on places that are closer, for everyday skiing.
While I love classical, I really prefer skating, as I have lower back issues that are aggravated a bit by classical. I’m waxing skies today and getting out all the old equipment and clothing.
Any other skiers out there, and if so where are you skiing now?
