Hey everyone looking for Oosik practice! Bryan Kirby is going to groom the trails today at the high school (across from Cubby's) BEST LINE! So if twisting around the curves is slowing you down at XY, the tracks will be straighter for classic-only skiing. The trail picks up behind the school at the gate to the track/field. It picks up to the left of the field shed and will run along the woods to enter the cross country trails. The track will be cleared over break, but this trail will remain. Please no dogs. Come, enjoy this classical opportunity. It will be better tomorrow after thae snow's set up. ... See MoreSee Less

From last night's meeting: MVFCU has a financial adviser, Jodie Smith, who is really great. Neighbors on Woodpecker are Daniel Doty, me, The Hicks Family, and Lisle is at the end. I know that Peggy Hicks & I have concerns about a string of cars parked on Woodpecker. The lot across from Danielle & I generally has a string of unusual characters coming & going. They are typically pretty wasted & driving on WP heavily under the influence. I'd really like to see you find a parking alternative to Woopecker, like the one I suggested - Fireweed Honey. We do have a busy road year round. You just have to live on it to know that. ... See MoreSee Less

March 8 Ski Race at Trapper Creek Cabin Fever Reliever. If you haven't been on this trail it is beautiful. It is a 3K with great hills and kind, easy run outs. It is groomed lovingly by Ralph Kolbeck and it should make for a fun race. Race sign up is 10-11am. Kids race 1 loop and adults race 2 loops. Nice and wide trail for skate or classic but no set tracks. Come on out this Saturday ... See MoreSee Less
