The First Cross-Country Ski of the Year

With State College being lucky enough to receive a ton of snow this week, it has our mind on getting on the trail and experiencing some of the first cross-country skiing of the year. With Rothrock being such a close destination with so much to explore, Geoff made the most of this storm and explored an area of Rothrock right outside of State College.

Where to begin and end: Bear Meadows Road

Like all outdoor activities, cross-country skiing is something that you want to be prepared to do safely and comfortably, and despite each of us having our own requirements, here are a few things that should be brought along: a map of Rothrock State Forest, a good pair of ski socks, a water bottle, a headlamp for after dusk, and proper clothing for the day’s conditions. And if you’re looking to rent a pair of cross-country skis before committing, we offer a rental service.
