Ski tour of Boutwell Hill State Forest planned Saturday

Members of the Boutwell Hill Ski club will lead a group ski this Saturday, Feb. 1 on the Boutwell Hill State Forest cross country ski trails.

The group will depart the Ruttenbur Road parking lot at 10 a.m. in the Town of Charlotte. Skiers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Those who don’t like skiing alone and have never skied the trails, can have their chance. Arrive by 9:45 for a brief orientation. The ski will last about an hour.

Dress warmly in layers. Bring some water, cell phone and a snack. Visit www.boutwellxc.wordpress.com for more information about the Boutwell Hill Ski Club, trail maps, grooming reports and directions to the Ruttenbur parking lot.
