December 30, 2017;  Grooming Report

Volunteer Opportunity!: Want to meet interesting people, solve world problems, earn fabulous prizes and see the world?  You too can volunteer as a host at the Forestville Trail head.  Help is needed to help at the trail head from 10AM-1PM and 1PM-4PM on weekdays or weekends.  Please visit www.noquetrails.org or call 906.235.6861 for details.  (editor’s note; our fact checking has indicated some of the above promises related to world problems, prizes and seeing the world may have been exaggerated).

Forestville Real Grooming Report:  Groomers are cleaning the skate lanes on the high traffic trails including the Noque and Animoosh to the pine plantation.

Way Too Long Grooming Report:    It looks like we babied the little snow we had and now will get a reprieve.  A significant snow event is forecast for today and tonight.  Groomers will be hard at the task tomorrow morning.

Saux Head: Tim groomed this Saturday and set track on the entire trail system.  The track is decent for the most part, but thin through Hemlock Pass, the Plunge, near Scenic View and up Hay-bale Hill on the far north side.

 

Fit Strip: The Fit Strip located in the Marquette Park Cemetery is open for skiing.  It is a beautiful trail through mature mixed forest.  There are rolling hills on two loops with a total of 3k of very nice skiing right in the heart of Marquette.  Snow is a little thin so here are only classic tracks on part of the trail.  I would add, there are some people that actually walk on the ski trail.  I don’t understand why one would walk on a ski trail.  I do politely ask walkers to keep to the edge of the groomed trail.  I also encourage all users to put some money in the pay pipe so Tom doesn’t have to by all the gas himself.  Enjoy.

Big Bay Pathway: Still too little snow to set track at Big Bay but that may change in a hurry.  Get your classic skis ready for Big Bay in the days to come.  More information to soon.
