We'll be snowshoeing or cross country skiing to a campsite in the Dolly Sods, in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia.  [If there’s no snow, we’ll be backpacking…] The Dolly Sods Wilderness is a unique and beautiful natural area, with bog and heath topography commonly typical to southern Canada. Elevations range from 2,500 to over 4,700 feet.  Most of the Dolly Sods is a rocky and high altitude plateau.

This is a winter trip.  You must be prepared with gear and equipment for cold weather – including [as needed] either cross country skis or snowshoes for travel on snow.  We will drive to the Whitegrass Ski Touring Center, rent skis or snowshoes, and then travel on the trails of the ski area into the Dolly Sods where we will camp for the night.
