Join me for 4.5 days and 5 nights of Nordic skiing trip at Golden Eagle Lodge on the Gunflint Trail. The Lodge has 70 km of groomed trails for classic and skate.
We’ll be staying at Cabin 23 https://www.golden-eagle.com/cabins/trailside-cabin/
Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota at edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and wilderness
Transportation: Carpool can be arranged. Drive up on Feb 19 in the morning, have time for an afternoon ski on the way up or at the lodge’s groomed trails.
What type of skiing?
This trip is for intermediate and above classic and skate skiers. We’ll enjoy the 70 km of groomed trails at Golden Eagle and Bearskin lodges, plus ski the Banadad Trail if it is groomed, an all day ski tour that is lots of fun and scenic. Plus, we can do a loop on several lakes within the Boundary Waters area for a unique ski tour experience. The groomed trail system has skate lanes. Plan on skiing daily at least part of the day.
What are the accommodations in the cabin
4 people max in a 1 bedroom cabin with queen bed in loft and double futon on ground floor. The trip can accommodate one couple plus up to 2 solo participants, or 3 solo participants using beds and floor. Final per person cost could be less than $400/person with fewer than 4 people.
COST $400 lodging + gas, food (based on 4 people). $400 due by February 1 to book your spot.
MEALS – Breakfasts and Dinners will be cooperative with participants dividing up meals to plan and bring/make for the entire group. There is a full kitchen at the cabin. Lunches and snacks are on your own.
To reserve your spot at the cabin, please let me know your Nordic skiing experience and preferences (for example: casual 1/2 day outings on the trail system, under 15 km, more rigorous skiing 30 km or more, and what type ski gear you’ll be bringing. Feel free to bring both classic and skate gear if you enjoy both styles.
Payment due date: $400 due by February 1. Paypal or mailed check. I’ll provide payment info once you are confirmed for participation. Please note – no refunds unless someone else takes your spot. I have prepaid for the cabin (required).
Feel free to call or email with questions! Glad to be of help. I have done cabin trips and skied in this area for several years and love it!
