    Winter Ski Trips Sign-up Guidelines

    You will be receiving flyers for the Nordic Ski Club’s 2014-2015 winter bus ski trips in the mail. DO NOT MAIL THE FORMS TO THE SKI TRIP LEADERS IF YOU WILL ATTEND THE OCTOBER 17 SIGNUP MEETING, as that meeting is the FIRST opportunity to sign up for these trips. You can bring signup forms from others who cannot attend the October meeting, but please note the signup order:

    1st) Program Committee Members, Board Members and ski trip leaders.

    2nd) People physically present at the signup meeting. One member of a household membership can bring all the registrations for their household.

    3rd) Signups brought to the meeting but the participants are not present in the signup line, as well as those ski trip registrations received by the ski trip leader no later than the day prior to the signup meeting date will be placed in a random drawing.

    4th) Mailed registrations arriving on or after the signup meeting date.

    Please complete the signup form and make your check payable to NSCM for the deposit amount for each ski trip. All ski trips offer an option of receiving the trip letter via e-mail. If you DO NOT select the e-mail option, please bring a self-addressed, stamped business-size envelope (9 1/2” x 4 1/8”) for each trip to the October signup.

    Signups begin at 7 pm on Friday, October 17 on a first come, first served basis. Please note that four to a room means that there are four people and two beds, with two people sharing each bed.

    Please note that due to the continued closing of the Watertown Plank Park & Ride lot this winter for the Zoo Interchange project, this year’s bus trips will depart from the Burleigh St Park & Ride lot located off the Hwy 45 Burleigh Street exit.

    • Saturday, October 18, 2014
    • 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    • New Fane Mountain Bike and Hiking Trails 2703-2817 County Line Dr Kewaskum, WI 53040

    The fall colors should be spectacular for this one! Check out the foliage on two miles of brand new Ice Age Trail along the Milwaukee River near New Fane.

    We will hike 7.2 miles one way in the Northern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest on the Milwaukee River Segment, which will include two miles of new trail built in 2013.

    From the DNR's New Fane parking lot, we will carpool to Sunburst Ski Hill and then hike back to New Fane.

    Highlights include a side trip to Shelter #1, rolling moraine topography, and wetlands abounding with wildlife. Possible group lunch in Kewaskum after the hike.

    Hike is rated moderately strenuous due to hills and distance. A State Park sticker is required.

    No pets are allowed on this hike, as the City of West Bend does not allow them in their parks. This hike is rated "moderate" due to hills and distance.

    Meet at the DNR's New Fane parking lot on the border of Fond du Lac and Washington Counties.  The parking lot is on the north side of Valley View Drive. Watch for yellow and black Ice Age Trail Event signs. Contact Craig with questions at 262-370-3322 or craigsan@wi.rr.com or contact hike leader Joe at 262-689-2766 or jha3@charter.net.

    • Saturday, October 18, 2014
    • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    • Scuppernong Trail Head, S58 W35820 Co Road ZZ, Dousman, WI
    How about getting a nice workout along with helping out the Ice Age Trail? This is a trail relocation construction project in the Scuppernong Segment. Meet at the Scuppernong Trails trailhead on the south side of CTH ZZ, located 10.5 miles south of I-94 on Hwy 67, then east on ZZ for .5 miles. Look for the yellow Ice Age Trail Event signs. This event is during an active hunting season in SKMSF, so wear bright clothing, along with sturdy gloves and footwear. For more information contact Pat at gwit@charter.net or 262-490-3515.
    • Sunday, October 19, 2014
    • 9:30 AM
    • Kettle Moraine State Forest, Wisconsin Route 59, Palmyra, WI 53156
    The gentle rolling hills of the South Kettle Moraine are wonderful for hiking and enjoying nature. On this hike we will explore the Ice Age trail that is north of the Headquarters. The length of the hike will be decided by the group that assembles that morning. It can be any length from 8 to 10 miles.

    Meet in the DNR Headquarters/Visitor Center parking lot on Highway 59 between Eagle and Palmyra on Sunday October 19 at 9:30 am

    State park stickers are required and can be purchased there if you do not have one. Bring water and snacks. I recommend wearing some blaze orange or bright color. Hunting times and zones have been changing constantly the past few years. Sturdy shoes help to safeguard feet and ankles although this part of the kettle region is not as rocky as the north. See you there. Barb Johnson 262.385.8102.
