Washington Ski Touring Club

Our 2020-2021 ski season

What can members of our club do in this ski season to avoid Covid-19 infection during WSTC events? We must remember social distancing while skiing, drive to trailheads with only those in our personal family/pod, and be cautious about spacing during lunch breaks.


DAY TRIPS -- We encourage members to arrange day trips and publicize them either through the "Impromptu Trips Forum" or by contacting the Trip Coordinators (Russ Hamerly and Jo-Ann Payne) for trips that are planned a bit more in advance.


OVERNIGHT TRIPS -- We have set up a new Forum for collaborating on overnight trips which will be in a new format. Here is an example:

Adelaide would enjoy having some club members to ski with her near Mt. Hood from January 19 to 22. She is planning on intermediate track skiing. Each member should make their own lodging accommodations and travel arrangements. Let Adelaide know if you are interested. She will communicate with any interested people about where and when to meet at Sno-parks or trailheads.


We hope this method will enable us to continue skiing with other WSTC members who have similar interests and skiing abilities while staying safe. Check out this new Forum and start planning your own trip.

WELCOME TO WSTC

The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented club of about 250 members who

organize nordic ski trips -- track skiing in groomed areas, and backcountry skiing in ungroomed terrain at various ski levels.  We love to ski and encourage you to join us! Our monthly meetings and potluck events are suspended for the 2020-2021 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic; we hope to offer those additional social gatherings in a future ski season. With membership, a person gets access to additional elements on our website: discussion forums to share information on snow conditions, provide trip reports, announce trip plans, sell gear, and post photos.

 

Tom Jacobi took advantage of our early season snowfall to ski at Amabilis Mountain on October 24. He's wearing his "I am not a deer, don't shoot" orange vest.
