Come to Silver Crest Cross Country Ski Area on Saturday, December 10 to celebrate the start of another great year of winter recreation in the Little Belt Mountains! The Silver Crest Trails Association has planned a fun- filled day of skiing, snowshoeing, live music and delicious, warming refreshments. The event is from 10AM to 3PM and is free of charge.
Beginner skiers and snowshoers are welcome. Snowshoes will be provided by the Lewis and Clark National Forest and the Montana Wilderness Association (just bring a pair of warm boots). Guided snowshoe hikes will be offered throughout the day. Big Horn Wilderness Specialists owners Beth and Chris Leatham will be on hand with classic and skate ski equipment for you to try. Instruction in both classic Nordic skiing and skate skiing techniques will be available. Experienced skiers are encouraged to bring their favorite skis and play a round of Nordic Trivia for prizes and glory, or enter a glide test and learn how to improve the performance of their skis.
Live music will be provided by the young and talented Great Falls musicians Marias Hale and Matt Keller. Listen to them while enjoying hot coffee or cocoa and hot Harvest Soup from Groundworks Farm. Check out the grooming equipment used by the Kings Hill Grooming Association and SCTA and warm up by the fire at the trailhead. Marshmallows and roasting sticks will be on hand!
It’s going to be a great way to kick off winter at Silver Crest — see you there!
