(High Sierra Line)
Nordic skiing is the best way to travel over snow.
You don't have to: 
 -carry your snowboard up long slopes.  Nordic skis allow you to ski uphill.
 -slog on snowshoes across snowy meadows. Nordic skis allow you to slide across the flats.

 


  Come enjoy the freedom of the wintry mountains with us.
