February 20th Grooming Report
Red in the Morning!
The old adage that goes “Red in the morning sailors take warning” has been around for a very long time with references going clear back to the Bible; even Shakespeare wrote in his play, Venus and Adonis, “Like a red morn that ever yet betokened, wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field, sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds, gusts and foul flaws to herdsmen and to herds.”
While we definitely don’t want sorrow to shepherds or any of the other dire predictions from our beautiful red morning start today, a little snow storm would be much appreciated by most in our beautiful valley. The forecast is not overly optimistic; however it does look like we’ll be getting a few inches of that amazing white stuff over the next couple of days which will do a fantastic job of freshening our Nordic trails.
Those Nordic trails are ready and waiting for you to take a ski at Trail Creek today. Today’s grooming actually began last night with almost every trail in the woods receiving a pass of the Husky. The majority of the evening operations included fresh sharp classic tracks. The Husky returned to duty early this morning, making double classic track and skate passes throughout the fields. Skiing is nice now and should continue to be nice throughout the day as hopefully some snow begins to fall.
Groomer’s choice for today is to enjoy a ski through the woods in the falling snow.
