Destination: Tabor Mountain
The Caledonia Ramblers have been invited to take part in the Hickory Wing Ski Touring Club's 45th annual Birchleg event at Tabor Mountain, 25 km east of Prince George, on Sunday, Jan. 21st. This event is open to both cross-country skiers and snowshoers. The Easy route the Ramblers (snowshoers) plan to take will start around 10 a.m. from the Moose Viewing Area pullout on the north side of Hwy 16. Snowshoers will then cross the highway and head west for five km to the ski club's boxcar parking lot where a fire and free hot dogs, snacks and drinks will await. A donation box will be located here for those wishing to make donations to the ski club for trail maintenance. Snowshoers will then return five km to the Moose Viewing Area, with a possible tour south, part way up the Martin trail, on the way back. Participants should bring a day backpack, extra warm clothing, gaiters and hiking poles. THEY'RE ALSO ENCOURAGED TO BRING WATER OR SOMETHING HOT TO DRINK, PLUS LUNCH AND/OR SNACKS, AS OCCASIONALLY THE BIRCHLEG IS CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW CONDITIONS BUT A SNOWSHOE GOES AHEAD. Please meet 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time of 9 a.m. in the parking lot behind Prince George City Hall.
The carpool fee is $3
