XC skiers and snowshoers celebrate Thanksgiving in the woods


The Meissner Nordic Ski Club groomed about six miles of ski trails at the Virginia Meissner snow park a few days ahead of the scheduled opening. Dozens made the trip up the cascade lakes highway to kick and glide before tucking in for turkey.

Volunteers run the grooming operations and depend on donations from those using the trials. If you’re looking to get up for some early season skiing and snowshoeing, don’t forget you’ll need a snow park pass to park at Virgina Meissner and any of the other snow parks across the state.
