Grooming January 23, 2018

January, 23 2018;  Grooming Report

Special Note to Skiers:  The Noquemanon Ski Marathon  course looks to be very good this year.  Heavy snow today  is frosting on the cake.  I know I will be on the starting line in Ishpeming.  See you all there.

There is no access to the “Mead Hills” bypass trail apart from race day. No pre-skiing is allowed as this is privately owned land. Gates to this section will be closed and locked. If you are skiing near the bypass prior to race day and the gate is open do not proceed – the only access we have to this trail prior to Saturday Jan 27th is for trail preparation. If you are found on this section of trail prior to race day you will be putting our organizations relationships with local land owners in jeopardy and you may be disqualified from the race with no refund.

Forestville Real Grooming Report:  Doug is out with the Bombi and is going from the ponds to the basin and back. You will enjoy spectacular classic and skate lane skiing all the way to co rd 510.  Everything else besides Bagwaji is rolled.  We are now setting track now on Chiwaji, Muckwa, Migizi, Animoosh, and the old half of Gookookoo. The side trails will be soft but the Bombi grooming will be spectacular.  Enjoy.

Way Too Long Grooming Report:    Sorry for the delay.  One would have to have gotten up at midnight to get ahead of snow removal of the St. Bernard’s day storm.  Skiers on the Haute Route enjoy the monk’s hospitality in the 10th century monastery that bears his name near the end of the 10 day run from Zermatt to Chamonix.

Saux Head: Tim will roll and groom as time permits.


Fit Strip:    Tom will roll and groom as time permits

Big Bay Pathway: Sven will roll and groom as time permits.


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. “
