just me


My father bought these skis for me 50 years ago! I still like to take them out once or twice a year. And Skogan Pass is the perfect destination. The pine tar base (and a cake of blue wax that is almost as old) grips very well on the climb. And on the way down, you are mainly trying to control the speed. There's not much stride 'n glide on this trip! We returned via Skogan Loop.
As reported by Des a couple of days ago, Skogan Pass and Loop and Hummingbird Lookout have all been groomed and trackset recently. And there has been very little traffic since.
