Trails are open for 2017!

Happy New Year trail users!  With 18 inches of snow last Thursday on top of our initial 9 inch base, ski and snowshoe conditions have catapult1-tree in winter at libby hilled to fabulous in the past week.  All trails are open including the Winter Trail for snowshoeing.  Trail conditions will be updated on our Facebook page and we encourage trail users to add their comments on trail conditions there as well.  Remember trail rules change in the winter:

Wide Groomed ski trails are for skiers only.

Snowshoers, hikers and walkers can use the narrow snowshoe and snowmobile trails.  Follow the short shared section of the Lynx and Moose Odyssey that are marked with long green ribbons to guide you past the ski trails and over to the Lynx, Harold Libbey, Outback, and Winter Trail.

Pets can only go on the narrow snowshoe trails and must be leashed.

Sliding is available at the middle school hill, bring your sled!

Find you way on the hill using your smart phone and our new trail map on Google!

Get out and taste winter at Libby Hill!

2016 Libby’s Dually Course

The 2016 Libby’s Dually course had been set. It is 2.9 miles/lap, only slightly longer than last year but it is a lot more challenging. Last years lap times were running 14 minutes and this years lap takes about 21 minutes. The course consists of more singletrack than last year including Ghost, Lynx & Harold Libby intermixed with wide trails for passing. This year’s course runs counterclockwise:

The race class will complete 4 laps of the bike loop and the sport class will complete 2. Both classes will complete a single loop on the same run course as last year. Repeat: THERE WILL BE NO MORE RUNNING THAN LAST YEAR.(About 1 mile)

So, get off the fence and sign up now! The event is in less than 2 weeks!

Libby’s Dually Results

Our first annual all-terra duathlon was a great success.  The weather cooperated with a perfect sunny fall day.  The overall winner was Doug Welling with a time of 43:10.  The first female over the line was Carrie McCusker with a time of 51:10.  All the racers I talked with reported having a good time and were looking forward to doing it again next year.  There is a link to the full results at the bottom of the page.

Introducing Libby’s Dually

Libby Hill’s first Duathlon will consist of a 1/4 mile Le Mans style start to break up the field followed by a 6 mile (2 loop) mountain bike ride and then a 1-3/4 mile run to the finish, all on dirt. The terrain is a mix of wide trails that are great for passing and some sections of single track all with enough elevation gain to make it a challenge. Bring your mountain bike, bring your fat bike you could do it on a cross bike (I wouldn’t) but leave your road bike home.

Course Map: Coming Soon. MTB sections will be on Lynx, some Harold Libby & Moose Odyssey. Running will be on Turkey Trot, around the school, Lower Lynx and back down Moose Odyssey. The transition area will be in the upper field behind the middle school.

We’ll have some seasonally appropriate food at the end and have you home by mid afternoon. Come out and have some fun before winter sets in. There will be no points of any kind awarded for this race, it’s just for fun.  Awards will be given out for the top male and female finishers.

As always, all proceeds will fund the trail system.
