Panhandle Nordic Club of North Idaho

Trail Work Party Tuesday June 7th (Fourth of July Trails

Meet 9 AM, June 7, Cherry Hill Park for car pooling.  (that park is behind the 15th Street Firehouse )

We have about three tenths of a mile of Ski & Shoe to clear to make this ski and snowshoe trail more usable. The “Thursday Hikers” have agreed to assist in the clearing.

But we could use some more workers to complete the brushing, branch lopping and tread clearing work in an expeditious manner.

Due to its overgrown character this is a trail little known to many club members, so this is also an opportunity to learn a little more about ski and snowshoe opportunities on the area.

Some have asked me or Jim when and how to get involved in trail maintenance. This is an opportunity. We plan to meet at 9 AM on Tuesday, June 7th at Cherry Hill Park off 15th Street in Coeur d’Alene. With a large enough group we will be able to wrap things up in the morning, possibly running into the early afternoon. Bring branch loppers, if you have them, and work gloves, water and lunch. If you have questions call me at 762-1246. Thanks   Geoff H

    Hello
    I am considering a move to Lewiston, ID, from central Wisconsin. I like to XC ski, skate and classic, groomed trails. Am open to learning to back country ski also. How would be living in Lewiston in the winter for getting to some snow and trails? if easier, please call me 715 572 1254 to go over what it is like for someone who likes to XC ski a lot to live there.
    Thanks so much
    Karl

      I assume you have researched Lewiston’s climate. It is only about 700 feet above sea level, almost never snows and even less likely to stick. You’d have a long way to go to get to groomed trails. Summers are hot and dry. Winter relatively mild – they golf and bike year round. http://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/activities/nordic
      Even these areas are not high enough to have consistently good snow, and the grooming may not be up to your expectations.
      If you are looking for communities with world-class nordic and a lot of like-minded people, I would look into McCall, Id., Ketchum, Id., or Winthrop, WA

      I have trained for three Birkies out of Moscow, Idaho, which is about 30 min north of Lewiston. Nearby groomed XC areas include Palouse Divide (50 min NE of Moscow) and Fields Spring (45 min south of Lewiston). These areas are good in cold winters but poor skiing in warm, El Nino winters. McCall is 3 hours south of Lewiston. Would be better of course to live in a real ski town like McCall or Winthrop but not all of us can manage that luxury.

    I’m good at figuring out how to get places; can’t figute out how to get to the 4th of July Nordic center. Seeing it will factor into my decision to join. I’ll appreciate your help.

      I-90 East of Coeur d’Alene by about 11 miles. I think exit 28. The exit is well marked as 4th of July Recreation Area.
