Grooming February 8, 2016

Grooming February 8, 2016 Normal People’s Grooming Report:   

Forestville:  Andy and Kirby are out grooming and re-track setting all trails inside the bridge at 17k. Today’s snow combined with falling temperatures will bring our snow back to an ideal texture on top of a hard surface. Enjoy.

Saux Head: All trails were groomed Saturday.

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:  Today you can enjoy (fairly) mild weather and great snow. Later in the week low Temperatures in the single digits with a stiff north wind will remind skiers this is a winter sport. However, this cold weather cycle will keep the fresh snow calling for blue wax all week.

I should ask; can anyone tell me about yesterday’s skiing? I reported that skiing would be race ready. By the time brunch was done I was behind on chores and then second milking. I never got out. On the up side, I won $20 last night. I have never actually watched a football game if the Packers were not playing. I mean, why bother. Well, now I know. Gambling can make any game interesting. Of course had the Broncos lost I expect I would be taking about a stupid game.
