Grooming February 7, 2016 Normal People’s Grooming Report:   

Forestville:  Bombi Grooming Today! Expect race ready conditions on the Noque’ and Animoosh to Co Rd 510 and the Wagis.

Saux Head: All trails groomed yesterday morning.

Big Bay Pathway: Big Bay Pathway trails are for classic skiing only. The Big Bay Pathway was groomed on 2/4. ALL trails are open including our crown jewel, The Ridgeline. Please be careful on the down hill portion of The Ridgeline, it is long and fast. Given the remoteness of the trail, always ski with a partner. Cell phone service is not available in all parts of the trail.

Fit Strip: The Fit Strip (located at the Park Cemetery) in the city of Marquette is groomed regularly. New heavy snow will make this loop excellent for lunch hour outings.

Single Track Snow Bike Trails: The South Trails are groomed for snowbike riding. Snowbike grooming at the South Trails is at the cutting edge of the sport. NTN is continually evolving grooming technology. If you have never seen these trails in the winter you need to get out there. You have to ride a snowbike on a groomed trail to appreciate what is being invented right in our back yard. You need to get out there.

The Way Too Long Version:  Skiing today will be as close to fun as aerobic sports get. When things are good you tend to forget that it is not always so. I know the self-loathing hope for a cold wind in the face and the back end of a freeze/thaw cycle but they will just have to wait. Once in a while everything comes together. Bombi grooming, snow of the proper “age”, mild temperatures and light air will make all but the truly malcontent smile. Neither the Packers nor Red Wings play today and you can DVR the PBA tournament. I am going to have to reschedule my hair appointment and sock drawer project and ski today.
