Description

Farris Creek is a change of pace from the Strand Hill ride, and rolls through a beautiful valley below Doubletop Mountain.

Follow the directions to Strand Hill to start. Climb Farris Creek Road double track up and ride straight past the left of Strand Hill Road. Continue straight and up a short hill, through a gate, then down a quick hill. Stay left here, passing the Farris Creek Trail 409 and Trail 409.5 on the right. Continue up the beautiful wetland valley on the road. Cross Farris Creek and turn left on a signed singletrack shortcut. Rejoin the road in 1/3 mile.

Next, pass the 402 Trail, marked only with two very large rocks. To continue to Farris Creek, stay left with the road. It gradually narrows to a singletrack. It will climb gradually to a fence (please close the gate behind you!), and then head downhill and through another gate.

Enjoy the technical descent to the Strand Bonus Trail. Turn left and roll along smoothly except for some fun technical suprises and one steep climb. Pass the Strand Hill and Strand Bonus Trails, continuing straight onto the Canal Trail, for a twisty fast ride to the end at the water canal. Beware of riders coming the other way on the Canal Trail. Turn left and head back to town on Brush Creek Road

SPONSOR:

Brothers Morgan and Caleb Weinberg started Romp Skis in 2010. Both have a long background in the construction industry. This knowledge of building coupled with some experience in fiberglass work gave them the skill base to start making skis. Both brothers are life long skiers, learning when they were young children in northern New Hampshire. They progressed through high school ski racing and then moved to Colorado in search of deeper snow. In the winter of 09-10 construction work was slow for Caleb’s company. During this same time Morgan was reading online that people were making skis in their garages.

That winter the brothers made 8 pairs of skis in Morgan’s garage with the construction tools that they already owned. These skis weren’t pretty but they skied really well. Morgan and Caleb gave them out to their friends to ski. Everyone who tried them came back with big smiles on their faces saying how much fun these ugly garage made skis were. This feedback gave the brothers the motivation to rent a factory space and start Romp Skis. By the end of the 2010-11 season Romp Skis was making custom skis for the public.

Since that time the factory has moved once and grown into the production facility that it is today. Romp Skis still builds handcrafted one of a kind custom skis for each customer out of the best materials that money can buy. These skis are meticulously designed and crafted with one goal in mind, to make skiing more fun for the customer.
