No Grooming Again; April 14, 2015

Grooming Report April 14, 2015

Saux Head April 12 2015

NO GROOMING TODAY;    I was feeling rather smug in my confidence on winning the “Last Ski of the Season” contest and even took my skis out of the truck.  Then, to my horror, one of our Forestville trail head fixtures informed me he had applied summer storage wax to his skis.  So, just as washing one’s car makes it rain, clearly we will now get more snow.  As you may recall, my nonagenarian mother won the prize a few years ago on Mother’s Day (I can post pictures for those that doubt it).  So, I am not spending my winnings until at least we are assured the Venerable Bede will not have a storm this year.

 

Forestville:

ATTENTION SKIERS! PLEASE AVOID ACTIVE LOGGING OPERATION.  Logging operations are dangerous.  We have signed, flagged and blocked trails in an effort to keep skiers from this danger.  Some skiers have chosen to ignore these warnings and it is very disruptive to the operation and dangerous to the skiers. Every time a skier approaches the operation the operation must stop and the logger must assure himself it is again safe to work.   The land owners provide us the courtesy of letting us groom a ski trail on their property.  In return we should offer the courtesy of avoiding the active operation.  PLEASE DON’T JEPORDIZE A GOOD THING. 

 

Please note: some trails are affected by logging operation.

 

There are bare spots so ski at your own risk or to win a bet. 

Skiers are reminded that most of the U.P. is a commercial forest.  This is a great thing because it allows us to play in the woods.  The land owners practice the highest form of sustainable forestry and selectively harvest the high quality northern hardwood.  If you see them in the woods, thank them for their stewardship.
