Grooming Dec 26, 2016

December 26, 2016; grooming report

Real Grooming Report Forestville Saux Head and Fit Strip: Warm overnight temperatures have left the trails very soft. We recommend no skate skiing for fear deep ruts will destroy the base. Temperatures are forecast to fall through the day and freeze hard tonight. Deep frozen ruts are the worst case scenario. Please wait for the freeze before skate skiing. It is thought classic skiing will not have a negative effect but please be conscious of your ski’s effect on the track and stay off if it is being damaged. Our base is still thin and must be preserved. New snow will arrive later in the week.

Way Too Long Grooming Report: Today is the typical day that most of the kids try out their new skis. Given the ski report above it looks like the skis will sit for at least a day. So, the rest of us that didn’t get skis will get to use our gift. If I can get mine started I’ll warm my hands. I wish I had gotten the “easy light” coal.

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.
