Your Membership Matters!
Our mission is to promote all forms of Nordic Skiing as a healthy form of individual and family activity. There are many diverse aspects of this mission including maintaining and grooming over 170 kilometers of world-class ski trails designed for touring, performance skiing, and racing. Serving the local Nordic community requires a year-round commitment involving a small but energetic workforce, many dedicated volunteers, and a fleet of specialized heavy equipment.
Your generous financial support makes all this possible. Become a member today!
Hi ho, hi ho... your groomers are ready to go!!
Tom, Craig and Bill are waiting for a lot more snow to pull the "big cats" out of the den, so in the meantime, some "base development" is keeping them busy.
Base development involves working the early snow, as gently as possible, to compact it so that it bonds to the trail. We frequently do this by wheel packing the snow with three-wheelers. Once the snow has bonded to the ground and there is enough of it, we'll move to snow machines with compaction wings. We'll stay on snow machines until the trail has either adequate depth or hardness to carry the weight of the Pisten Bully.
Up on the Hillside, Tom has been working on the base and is pleased that the diehards on their rock skis are helping by skiing it down. To assist him in his efforts, it would be best if we quit biking and hiking on the trails at this time.
Thanks and have a great weekend! THINK SNOW!!
