Grooming Dec 25, 2016

December 25, 2016; grooming report

Real Grooming Report Forestville: Kirby is grooming all trails inside 14k. Beyond 14k there was very light traffic yesterday. Overnight freezing temperatures will mean the snow did not fully transform in yesterday’s thaw. Expect good skiing today. Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah.

Saux Head: Saux Head trails groomed and tracked. with a nice base. Grooming at Saux Head is on an “as needed” basis but at least once per week.

Fit Strip Trails: The Fit Strip in Marquette is now open for skiers. Trails groomed and tracked.  Grooming is performed as needed but at least once per week. Skiers should be advised that some people do also walk on the groomed trails so expect some foot prints.

Way Too Long Grooming Report: I must apologize for the lack of reporting yesterday. Other commitments got in the way. When I was growing up things were so much easier on parents. My father could go to Spear’s Dock and get everything he needed for our stockings. Now Spear’s Dock is called Mattson Harbor Park a ship hasn’t unloaded there for decades. I think it is illegal to even use a switch on a child and do you know how hard it is to find coal in this town?

Trail Host Volunteers Needed: I expect you have enjoyed the company and service of our trail head hosts over the years. You too can be a host volunteer. It is fun and warm work. You get to play with fire, meet interesting people and perform a valuable service to the community. The ideal volunteer provides services for a 3 hour shift once a week M-F. Our trail head coordinator is JJ Farrington. Please stop and say hi. If you would like to help out, call JJ Farrington for details. 248-242-2723.
