Cross-country ski tours

2,056 posts in this topic

If anyone else is interested in joining, put your name on the waiting list.

 

Then we'll know for future weeks what the potential interest level is.

 

Also, there's a small chance we may extend to 20 people this week, but I need to speak to the ski hire and restaurant places first.

As we often point out in the cycle tours when our list fills up, it isn't that hard for people to organize their own alternative tour if they really want to. Just use a previous tour plan as a template and start an alternative meetup thread. For pure beginners, just go to Lenggries, take the bus to the loipe, and rent some skis for the beginners loop for a couple of hours and see if you like it.

But I did notice that the list filled up very quickly, and many of the names belong to "the usual suspects". But then, first come, first served.

 

Well, popular events fill up quickly, and as with the bike rides we have more people wanting to come than is logistically possible. We don't specifically tell the regulars when the details will be posted, so everyone has an equal chance, and at least two of them have missed out this week. Bear in mind that on the tours suitable for beginners the organiser needs some regulars to help with the logistics like looking after the stragglers or to help when other problems materialise, as they invariably do when there are a lot of beginners on a tour.

Would anybody be up for doing the same tour on Saturday? Then we could accomodate more people. It should be sunny on Saturday too!

 

Maybe an 'old hand' would be willing to volunteer to organize things?

Good news, I've spoken to both the ski hire shop and the restaurant and we can squeeze in 20 people.

 

I feel a bit bad for Blondeniceguy, but 20 really is the absolute max for ski hire, restaurant capacity, and five-person train tickets.

 

Thanks everyone for sending me your ski hire details, we now have the full list and I've sent off the reservation.

Afraid not, Dieter. It's a community event so we go as a team. And this week we're already full to capacity.

It's been snowing overnight in Fischbachau, the temperatures should remain sub-zero until Sunday, and then the sun will come out.

 

We couldn't ask for more! Keep your fingers crossed that this forecast holds true.

 

If there are any questions, problems, or cancellations, send me a message.

 

And I'd recommend saving my mobile number to your phone, in case anyone gets separated on the day: 0177 7838 574

 

See you Sunday!

Thanks all for joining yesterday, it was a fun day.

 

This coming Sunday, February 3, all the usual organisers will be away. That includes me, Small Town Boy, and Newinmunichberlin. So if anyone else wants to volunteer, please go ahead. You can use the archive of posts for itinerary ideas. Google has further info on weather, snow conditions, routes, ski hire, suitable lunch stops, and so on.
