Kahler Glen December 27 2009 edit

Since there was a decided lack of snow at Kahler glen a few club members met at the Stevens Pass Nordic center. See the photos on Picassa. (Jan 1, 2010)


The Snoqualmie Nordic Club wishes you a healthy, white Christmas this year.

Enjoy a day of skiing with the Snoqualmie Nordic Club on Sunday Dec 27, 2009 near beautiful Lake Wenatchee (between Stevens Pass and Leavenworth).

The Kahler Glen Nordic trails and the adjacent Lake Wenatchee State Park Nordic trails combined offer some of the best classic Nordic skiing in Washington. Kahler Glen's trails are open to the public at no charge. To ski on the adjoining trails maintained by the State Park, bring your snow park permit and trail pass. Kahler Glen sells Day & Season Trail Permits at the office as well. Bring your classic skis because trails might not be groomed for skating.
