Need advice on XC skiing near SF Bay!

Post by Eric Elfn » Tue, 07 Mar 1995 11:22:16


This Saturday (3/11) I'd like to do some XC skiing and am seeking advice
on how to make it a success. Please send me your suggestions.

I'd like to leave from work Friday and head for a cheap motel near a
ski area. I'll rise early Saturday morning for a short drive to the ski
site. I'd like to ski in groomed tracks, intermediate+. I'll hammer
out many miles (20+ if easy skiing). Then drive back Saturday night.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Eric

I'd recommend RoyalGorge,near Soda Springs on I-80 just before you get to
Donner Summit.   The best place to stay is Serene Lakes Lodge in Soda
Springs.  $60 or so.  You could also check out Cal Lodge or Clair Tappan
for $25-$35/night price range.
