December 20:  Chief Joseph XC Ski. The Bitterroot Ski Club is hosting a special tour of the 30.6 kilometers (19 miles) of new multi-use ski trails (along the Continental Divide) that have been added to the Chief Joseph Ski Area over the last two years.  Touring will begin from the Gordon Reese Cabin at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 20th.  Participants will divide into groups of skiers who want to cover varying distances and move at different speeds.  Expert skiers, familiar with the new trails, will lead each group.    http://bitterrootxcskiclub.net/?page_id=1664  If you want to join me for this event, we can car pool.  Leader:  Alden Wright.    This email address is being protected from spambots.

 December 27:  XC Ski trip:   I'd like to do a ski trip on Saturday, 12-27. I'd lean toward Lubrecht, there should be enough snow then, and you can bring your dogs. If conditions look better at Lolo Pass we could go there. I will have a better idea of the particulars of the trip in a couple of weeks.
