January Strava Challenge
Participants are eligible for draw prizes based on a random draw from all participants at the end of the Challenge. The Segment will appear on your Strava as "SPNC January Challenge". The challenge goes until January 31st. In order for us to see you to enter you in the draw, you must make the activity public (in the Menu for "Who Can See", click "Everyone"). We plan to post a different course every month. Cruise it, race it, or stop for lunch along the way. Everyone who skis the route is eligible for the draw. Here is the route:
Start at the very top of Whiskey Jack (junction with McGillivray Lake Trail, opposite Moose Track).
Go down Whiskey Jack
At En Garde, turn immediately hard right onto Blue Grouse, (now going uphill)
Veer left off Blue Grouse onto Nut Hatch and continue all the way to Raven Return (NOT RAVEN RAMBLE) then turn right down Raven Return
At the end of Raven Return, where it joins the bottom of Raven Ramble, take a quick jog to the right to Sigge's Shortcut and then onto Otter Loop
Take Otter Loop all the way around to MLT (don't turn onto Great Grey as we did last time, so keep right at the first junction)
Turn left onto MLT and go downhill to the Whisky Jack junction where you started.
December Strava Challenge Here is the December route in case you want to ski it for interest (it's almost exactly 5 km):
