Grooming February 8, 2018

February 8, 2018;  

Thank you Trail Builders: Today’s report is brought to you by Marquette Maple and Micah Ohman.  The Marquette Maple’s financial contribution is recognized at the 9k mark.  Please ski by the 9k mark but more importantly, thank Marquette Maple for their support of the trails we know and love.

Forestville Real Grooming Report:  Groomers are cleaning the skate lanes on the Noque to 17 and Animoosh, Chiwagi, Muckwa, Migizi and Gookookoo.  Yesterday they could not improve the tracks by re-setting and today is the same.


Special note to skiers:  Skiers are reminded we have rental equipment at the trail head. Adult and youth   classic and skate ski equipment as well as snow shoes can be rented daily from 10-4.

Saux Head: Tim groomed all trails Friday and set classic tracks.   Saux Head trails are groomed for classic and skate skiing. The trails are spectacular with great hills as well as rolling terrain.  The views are beautiful and overlook Superior and Saux Head.  Today and the weekend look to be great days for Saux Head.  If you have not skied them you don’t know what you are missing.  Please go today, tomorrow or Sunday. The trail head is located 15 miles west of Marquette just off Co Rd 550; follow the signs.

Fit Strip: Trails are groomed as time permits.

Big Bay Pathway: Trails are groomed as time permits.

Big Bay trails are groomed for classic skiing.  Trails are just off Co Rd 550 in Big Bay.

Way Too Long Grooming Report:   I expect some of you are thinking we have had enough really cold weather.  You know, when things are really good you don’t realize it until they change.  This snow has yet to see any temperatures near freezing and that is a great thing.  Today’s high is forecast in the teens with fairly light winds.  The smart guys and gals will be out skiing.  The others will be counting spiders in the basement counting spiders on their mag trainer.


PS: Sponsored By pictures will begin soon.  So, if you have not renewed your Trail Builder membership, now is the time. You don’t want to lose your K marker.   Please don’t make me track you down. “
