Nordic Program – Track Update
January 2017

Our 3 Creek Ranch Nordic Season is in full swing. The track is in great shape with all  the new snow we're having. Maps are available in the Pro Shop. Look for a weekly email to be sent on Thursday's with the schedule of events for the following week.

PRO SHOP-NORDIC CENTER: We will meet for all Nordic events and clinics in the Golf Pro Shop (Nordic Pro Shop in the winter!). We have created a warm and welcoming space for everyone to begin or end their outing on the track.

PRO SHOP SERVICES: I will continue to provide a full service ski wax and tuning service at the Pro Shop, along with ski storage. 

All my best to you and yours, 
Roger & Nathan


3 Creek Ranch Nordic Schedule
January 9 – January 15, 2017

- Monday, January 9
Ski Tour: Bar BC Ranch and Timbered Island
Time: 9:00 am – 2:30 pm
Place: Meet at the Nordic Center at 9:00 am.
Mileage: 6 miles - this is an out and back tour to the Snake River bottom and along the east side of Timbered Island.  
Maximum elevation: 6,650’  Elevation Gain: 125'’ 

We’ll begin this tour at the Cottonwood Creek parking area in GTNP, ski about a half mile up the road, then turn east and ski along the ‘RKO’ road to the historic Bar BC Ranch. There is a short downhill section where we ski down off the river terrace to the Ranch. A pleasant ski along the east side of the Timbered Island on our way back will round out this tour. Facilities at the trailhead.

Notes on what to bring - recommended gear for all our Ski Tours:
 a small daypack, insulated water bottles, (a small thermos of hot tea or cocoa is always a pleasure to have), lunch/snacks. Clothing: although all of us warm up and cool down in a unique manner…we strongly recommend wearing any combination of light-to-mid weight layers such as smartwool or capilene, and maybe a thin down vest (anything non-cotton!) that can be removed or added based on weather conditions and level of exertion; a lightweight outer shell jacket, extra warm layer such as a light weight down puffy jacket for a lunch stop; and consider having both a light-weight and heavier-weight hat and gloves. As always, contact me if I can help you with these types of Nordic clothing.
Length and destination of the tour is weather dependent.

- Monday, January 9
Ski Tour: Classic Ski with Nathan – 3 Creek Ranch
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Description: Bring your classic skis and Join Nathan for a casual group ski around the 3 Creek Ranch Nordic track. The intent is a casual ski among friends, or a time to meet new friends who share a love for Nordic skiing, maybe pick up a few ski pointers along the way and most importantly have fun sharing the morning among good company.
