Taste of the Trails is designed to encourage skiers of all ages and abilities to try cross-country skiing in a simple and festive format. A 5 km (3.1 mile) course will take skiers and snowshoers around the Rendezvous Ski Trails. Four feed stations are staffed by volunteers and offer snacks and beverages to participating skiers. Skiers can casually stride from station to station, revel in the winter landscapes, refuel with friends and explore the trails in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere. All skiers and snowshoers must have a Rendezvous Ski Trails pass. More information in blue writing above.
~ The course will start at the Trailhead Building at the Rendezvous Ski Trails, through the In & Out Trail to the main junction.
Feed Station #1 will be located near the large trail map and will feature appetizers. Feed Station #1 will close at 1:45 pm.
~Skiers will then be directed along Rendezvous Loop on Washburn Cut-Off to
Feed Station #2, The Soup Station.
Feed Station #2 will close at 2:30 pm.
~ Continue on Rendezvous Loop which will bring you back to the Biathlon Range and Taylor Fork Cabin for Feed Station #3, the main course and a campfire to huddle around.
Feed Station #3 will close at 3:15 pm.
~The final leg of the course will return to the trailhead building via Purple Haze where
Feed Station #4, 
dessert, music, a campfire and a party atmosphere will be waiting!
