Becoming a better skier

Grooming Report: The stadium at Talkeetna Lakes Park was groomed for Jr. Nordics this morning. Looks like Mark or Russ from the MSB was out on the other trails.
Fish Lake was groomed for skate skiing. It was getting a little glazed, so it should be better for a little while.

Mark of the park report for 2/8/16
Hello all. Ski trails are holding out well with the warm weather.
Groomed all the ski trails and lakes today.
X lake is all ice. So, If you want a change of flavor you could ice skate.
All other lakes are in good shape.
Our grooming schedule is still Mondays and Fridays.
See you on the trails

Anyone interested in taking the train to Curry on Saturday, Feb.13 and skiing back to Talkeetna? It's about a 25 mile trip, but all downhill ! The train leaves Talkeetna at 11:25 AM. Who knows when it gets to Curry, but skiers will have to move at a steady pace to get back to town before dark. The club may run a groomer up and back on Friday to sweeten the trail and give an updated trail report.
Anyone skiing this must be self-sufficient (clothing,food,water,etc.)
Let me know.

Fish Lake was groomed for skate and classical skiing this afternoon.If it stays cold tonight it should be great tomorrow.
The high school kids were on a tour from Talkeetna Lakes to The Grove today. I ran into them on Fish Lake while I was grooming and got a couple of cookies out of the deal. Seemed like they were having a blast. Good stuff.
