Enjoy a great ski on part of the Iditarod National Historic Trail (INHT). We will start at the bathrooms on the east side of the highway at Turnagain Pass. We will begin with a gradual ski in on a well-developed narrow trail through the forest with short climbs under various snow conditions. We will continue north to Ingram Creek where we will enjoy lunch before the return trip. There is a downhill section coming back down to the parking area.
Registration will open Saturday, November 26th at 10am. All day tours are $25/person.
