  1. I have gone skiing 3 times since the trail opened and plan to keep going until the snow all melts! I’ve chatted with a lot of people along the trail, and everyone is really excited and wants it to continue. The trail is along one of the most beautiful shorelines in the City,. Dave of Nakkertok with the help of Westboro Beach CA has done a wonderful job initiating this project. If you’ve tried it and like it and want it to continue, show your support by writing to
