Join us for this post-Thanksgiving Shakeoff ski for our first tour of the season. Travel under the rugged and beautiful peaks of the Archangel Valley and past old mining ruins in Hatcher Pass for a spectacular day of skiing on the Archangel Road.   This is a great opportunity for those who want to learn about ski touring in the mountains, or start skiing for the season.  Meet at the Carrs Muldoon parking lot near the bakery at 9 am.  From there we’ll car pool to the Archangel Road trail head about 0.8 miles up the road from Gold Mint Trail head.  If you’d rather meet us at the trail head, expect to see us about 10:30 am.  We anticipate arriving back at the cars about 3:30 pm, depending on how much fun we are having and how far we ski.  The first portion of the trail, to the Reed Lakes trail head, is flat gaining only 300 feet in 2 ½ miles.  This is a great turnaround spot for beginning skiers.  The trail to the gate is another 1 ½ miles, gaining 500 feet and will be a great downhill run for those with more experience.  We expect to ski about 8 miles round trip.
