If You Are In San Diego, CA - You can go snowshoeing and skiing!

Hi Skiers, We will try again this Sunday, Feb. 3 to ski on Mt. San Jacinto. Geoffrey Smith and I will take the tram from Palm Springs to Long Valley. The tram tickets are $21.95 + tax, $2 less for seniors, AAA, etc. I have some discount cards.

The weather forecast is for a chance of snow showers, and a high temperature near freezing. Dress warmly!

If you would rather ski in the woods than watch football, please come.

We will form two groups. The easy group will stay in Long Valley by the tram station, explore the area, and learn how to ski better. The more advanced group will ski about 5 miles, usually as far as the east face of Jean Peak. This requires back country skis with metal edges, and maybe climbing skins if the snow is icy. You have to be able to ski through the trees without running into them.

We will meet at 6AM at the Sabre Springs Marketplace Park and Ride, at the corner of Poway Rd and Sabre Springs Parkway, just east of I-15. Our normal waiting time is 15 minutes, so we will leave soon after 6:15AM. Carpools are encouraged. The Tram Parking lot is 125 miles north and east.

Please let me know if you want to come, and which group is best for you.
