Noquemanon Trail Network Real Grooming Report Forestville: Six inches of new cold dry snow fell yesterday and the Gator is out on the Noque and Animoosh to 17k this morning and setting fresh classic tracks. Then they will go back out on the other trails inside 17k but may run out of time before they all get classic tracks. Yesterday we roll packed all the way to the Dome.

Saux Head: All trails were groomed and track set Friday. Saux Head is groomed as needed but at least once per week.

Fit Strip Trails: The Fit Strip was groomed Wednesday night after the second day of heavy snow. Drew was skiing last night and said it was a winter wonderland. The Fit Strip in Marquette is now open for skiers. Grooming is performed as needed but at least once per week. Skiers should be advised that some people do also walk on the groomed trails so expect some foot prints.

Big Bay Trails: All trails except Ridge Line are groomed and open for classic skiing. Big Bay trails well be groomed as needed but at least once per week. Classic skiing on trails with no skate lanes are way more fun than being on the side of a skate lane. See our website for details on the Big Bay trails.

Snow Bike Trails: Snow bike enthusiast are encouraged to visit the Face Book page dedicated to snow bike trails. Conditions vary from day to day and grooming is not a daily event. Each day bikers will comment on conditions and post pictures. https://www.facebook.com/NTN-Singletrack-147765491905204/?fref=ts


Way Too Long Grooming Report: Wow, another day of 6”+ snow event. What a great thing. We can use the additional base but the groomer’s (and the report writer’s) dream is to receive about 2” of new snow every day. This embarrassment of riches creates several days of clean up grooming. Skiers will likely find a soft skate track today and it will take several days to set all trail’s classic tracks. Smart skiers pull out their classic skis after a major snow event because of the soft skate lanes.

Classic skiers will appreciate the use of the Gator for classic track grooming because of the firm outside pole plant provided. When at the trail head you may want to study the various pieces of equipment. The Gator is the enclosed side by side unit with four sets of tread tracks. The tracks are placed at the outer edge rather than in the middle as on a snowmobile. I am interested to know if any of today’s classic skiers notice today’s pole plant. Of course, all the trails and pole plants will be soft so today may be a poor day to run such a test. In any case, the pictures sure look good.

Trail Host Volunteers Needed: I expect you have enjoyed the company and service of our trail head hosts over the years. You too can be a host volunteer. It is fun and warm work. You get to play with fire, meet interesting people and perform a valuable service to the community. The ideal volunteer provides services for a 3 hour shift once a week M-F. Our trail head coordinator is JJ Farrington. Please stop and say hi. If you would like to help out, call JJ Farrington for details. 248-242-2723.

Vasa Trail From our new roving reporter, Phil Bert: “Skated freshly groomed snow from TR to Rileys Bench and back. Fast with plenty of control. No bare or thin spots.

DidnÂ’t look like classic tracks weÂ’re groomed but they seemed fine the few time I popped in them.

Jack Pine has not been groomed but the classic tracks are evident.”

Get out and ski, yÂ’all!
