    Please join us for some fantastic skiing at Minocqua Winter Park and Nine Mile Forest from January 23rd to the 25th. The bus leaves Friday morning at 8 am, is filling up fast, but still has some available seats. We will be stopping on the way up to ski at Nine Mile Forest in Wausau. Nine Mile Forest, which is the home of the Badger State Winter Games, has about 30 km of trails, groomed for striding and skating, and suitable for all abilities. There is a nice chalet with ski rentals.

    We will ski at Minocqua Winter Park on Saturday and Sunday. Minocqua Winter Park has 75 km of beautifully groomed trails for striding and skating, including both flat and hilly terrain for all skiing abilities. It has a large ski lodge with a café that serves a variety of excellent food; and has a well-stocked ski shop where ski and snowshoe rentals are available.  Minocqua Winter Park has made several improvements to the existing trail system.

    Both Nine Mile Forest and Minocqua Winter Park have extensive networks of designated snowshoe trails.

    Accommodations are at the Best Western Plus Concord Inn in Minocqua with swimming pool, whirlpool, bar/lounge, and free continental breakfast. A group dinner option will be available for Saturday night.

    • Tuesday, January 27, 2015
    • 7:00 PM
    • Lapham Peak State Park, W329N846 Waukesha C, Delafield, WI 53018
    Lapham Peak is the premiere location for cross country skiing in Southeast Wisconsin for many reasons, including 5 kilometers of lighted trails, of which 1.2 kilometers are served by snowmaking.

    Weeknights at the Peak are alive with activity, with the Peak Nordic Kids on Monday, lessons by Wheel and Sprocket on Tuesday, and adult and high school racing on Wednesday.

    This year, we are once again designating Tuesdays as NSCM Night. The event will be very informal. You could participate in the free lessons from L2Ski, starting at 7:00, or just show up when you feel like. Meet your friends in the Evergreen Shelter, head out and stride or skate a couple of loops around the lighted or snowmaking trails, and then around 7:30 to 8:00, come back to the shelter building to have refreshments with the group. Bring something simple to share – your beverage of choice, and an easy snack.

    No advanced sign-up is required, but if you have questions or suggestions, contact John McCarthy at 414-412-0331, but you should expect to leave a message, because he’ll probably be out at Lapham, skiing.

    The Nordics' 2015 grand finale ski weekend, March 6 - 8, to splendid Valley Spur located in upper Michigan’s snow belt is more than half full!

    Don’t delay, sign up soon. After skiing on Friday (weather permitting) at the Brown Co. Reforestation Camp outside Green Bay, there is likely to be plenty more outdoor activity (thanks to lake-effect snow and reliable grooming) the remainder of the weekend on Valley Spur's well designed classical and skate style ski system and separate snow shoe trails.

    A Saturday highlight, the annual Taste and Glide, an outdoor tasty food fest-celebration and fund raiser for Valley Spur, will be offered again for optional participation.

    Evenings can be spent relaxing at our overnight destination, the comfortable Holiday Inn Express overlooking scenic Lake Superior outside Munising, or exploring an interesting mix of local dining establishments, and, perhaps taking in some folksy music at the Falling Rock Cafe. More questions, contact leader Jane Stoltz, 1jmstoltz@gmail.com, or phone 414-226-5076.
