    Join the Nordics at 1:00 pm on Sunday, February 5 for a local ski outing at the Zillmer ski trails located in the Kettle Moraine State Forest - Northern Unit near Dundee, WI.  The Zillmer Trail Area is one of the more popular cross-country ski trails in southeastern Wisconsin with 18.2 kilometers of trails in a stacked loop system. There are four named loop trails and all are groomed for both classic and skate. The scenery is a pleasant variety of oak and aspen forest, pine plantations, marsh, and open fields. The terrain consists of long flats, numerous rollers, and a couple of large hills.  One of the trails also features a scenic overlook with expansive views of the surrounding area. A heated trail shelter is open for use.

    Directions: From the intersection of Highway 45 and Highway 67 north of Kewaskum, drive east on Highway 67 for 0.8 mile and turn south onto County Highway SS. Drive 1.8 miles on County SS to the Zillmer Trailhead parking lot entrance, on the north side of the road. A Wisconsin state park sticker is required for your vehicle.

    If there is not enough snow to ski at Zillmer, an email blast will be sent to club members several days before the outing detailing a different ski trail. Contact Paul Keber at 262-309-1918 or pkeber@milwpc.com for more information or to let him know you will be attending.

    The Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee (NSCM) continues to practice social distancing and the use of face masks, as recommended by the CDC and Wisconsin authorities.  Know that your participation in any event is at your own risk.  Before attending any NSCM outing or event, please check with the event leader.  Use good judgement and continue to keep us all safe.
