Join us for all or part of the day as JacksonXC Celebrates

Thom Perkins & Bengt Karlsson

Trails Dedications & Potluck Dinner

Sunday, Feb. 9

Dedication on the Trails: 3 pm – A group will depart the Touring Center at 2:30 to ski to this location which is at the junction of two trails near the Ellis River Trail.  Thom’s Reach is the southbound trail that links the Ellis River Trail to the bridge near Gray’s Field; and The Bengt is a trail that has been known as “South Hall Connector.” They meet right near Gray’s Field. These two trails are “workhorse” trails in our network and this gives us the opportunity to highlight the trails in our system AND honor two individuals who have made skiing possible in Jackson over many years.

Apres Ski Party: 4 pm –  At the Wentworth Resort Hotel.

Potluck Dinner: 5 pm to 7 pm – At the Touring Center. Feel free to drop off your Potluck Item any time after 2 pm. We will have a “crock pot” station in the back office.
