If you are looking forward to winter and live in the Twin Cities area you should plan to attend Midwest Mountaineering’s annual Winter Adventure Expo- http://www.midwestmtn.com. This event is scheduled for Friday, November 21 through Sunday, November 23 at Midwest Mountaineering’s Store located at 309 Cedar Ave, Minneapolis, and in large tents erected behind the store.
Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B will have a booth at the show and will be providing information about our winter Nordic Skiing program- including, ski and snowshoe vacations at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B and Ski-in Cabins, Yurt to Yurt and lodge to Lodge Skiing, and of course skiing the BWCA’s longest tracked trail the Banadad.
This year we have spent on lot of time clearing the Banadad Ski Trail in anticipation of the ski season. With the assistance of eight volunteers from the Minnesota Conservation Corp (YCC), three-quarters of a mile of the Trail’s remote interior by “Moose Kill Hill” was widened. Brush was encroaching into the Trail along this section; after the YCC completed their work this section of trail looked great! In addition the old Olga’s Hut, midway along the trail and used as sleeping quarters for larger groups was replaced. This overnight stop along the Banadad will now be able to comfortably accommodate nine people again.
The Banadad Ski Trail is maintained and operated carbon neutral.
Attending the show for Poplar Creek will be Ted Young and his daughter Karla Miller. They would love to have you attend the show and stop at their booth to say hi!
