Skiing in the Nine Mile - Capulin Area
February 20, 2005

   Come and ski Sunday afternoon  2/27/05.  Don't know how?  If there's enough interest I'll teach a class.
   If that happens well start here in the Nine Mile Picnic Ground Area.  Otherwise there's a harder trip going
   north higher up on the mountain that I'd like to do.  
   Contact me.  mtb@abundantadventures.com  or 294-3368
   Final Details:  We're leaving from my house at 12:15 
   There wasn't enough interest in the class, so that's off.  We're doing a trip of about 5 miles that will start below 9 Mile
   or near Ellis Trail head, depending upon conditions and include Survey Trail.

Trails in the Capulin X-C  Training Course        





















There are several  areas with flats or gentle gradients.  This is a good area  to start out.
