Kyburz Flats – Sheep Camp Loop

Photo Album

A great day for cross-country skiing at Kyburz Flats.  Except for a few bare spots on the first mile of Henness Pass Road from the highway (could have driven that), there was a perfect amount of snow: just enough to cover and ski on, but no effort to break a trail.  This route goes to the  Wheeler Sheep Camp (Basque shepherder oven exhibit), then around the Flats and up to a nice high meadow. The weather started out foggy, but turned sunny.

Statistics:

7.89 mi (2.67 mi uphill, 3.22 mi downhill, 1.97 mi flat)
500 ft total ascent – 9.1 % uphill grade, 92.4 % downhill grade

0:26:54 pace (2.2 mph average speed, 8.8 mph max speed)
