Hi EKat,
What do you do for track and skate skiing? Come down to Stillwater? Nothin groomed up your way is there? Do you know what there is close by in Canada?

Cheers,
Arne

hey. . . the last 3 winters I stayed at my little ski house on Mt Shasta . . . the track skeezin there is remarkable. . . there's also a home town Alpine area that I have been known to get top to bottom black diamond runs - TO MYSELF, all day long. . . it's a neat little ski area.

Up here?

Stillwater ROCKS. The people who own/run it are really neat.

Your place is great, too. . . I'll ski there as often as I can.

Been known to run around out at Star Meadow, too.

Izaak is undoubtedly the best. . . they're runnin' a Pisten Bully and almost nobody skis there. I've never seen another skater.

Kimberley Nordic, just north of me is also pretty incredible. . . community owned and operated with KILLER grooming (Bombardier) and get this, STREET LIGHTS for night skiing:

Full on STREET LIGHTS at Kimberley

The Nordic area at Fernie is INTENSE. . . I call it the Franz Klammer School of Nordic. I just learned of tracks that are set out behind the Canadian Tire, too. Gonna hafta check that out this season.

I ski set a little course right here on my 20 acres, too.

Old, dear friends, and their kids have moved up here (he's the Chief Ranger at GLAC) and we're gonna hit Blacktail a lot this winter. . . we hear it's pretty fun for families.

As for droppin' knee, Fernie, Kimberley, Big. . . and now, Blacktail (never skied there, before.)

I'm giving thought to renting a room in Whitefish to cut down on the driving. . . so if you hear of anybody who'd be into a roommate 2 or 3 nights a week, let me know.

BRING IT!

P.S. Oh, yeah. . . supposedly, Wilderness Club is going to do some kind of Nordic skiing. . . but I don't know the particulars. I'm looking out my loft windows at the place, as we speak. . . it's not even a mile away.

P.P.S. . . . and. . . Arne. . . what ever happened to the tracks at Big Mtn. They used to groom a ~ 10K and it was pretty good. . . now there's no mention of it, at all.

Ekat, Glacier Nordic Club groomed the Big Mt. trails all last winter.
This year we have permission to groom there until December 21- then we need to vacate for the xmas season. Their biggest concern is nordic skiers taking up parking space. Don't get me started...

But the main focus of the Club's grooming efforts is the golf course in Whitefish. We have 4k of lights, 13k of total skiing

WOW. . . teach me to ski on TheMountainShasta for 3 years. . .I'm totally out of the loop at Big Mtn.

RAD that they groom some of the time. Why in the SamHill don't they have a map of their trails on their site anymore? There's no mention of them, at all, anymore.

?

I've skied at Glacier Nordic a lot. . . I think it's a blast. . . especially when I have "NeverEver" house guests who want to play in the woods without pointin' down too many hills.

Do you volunteer to do the grooming or is it a job?

Grooming is a job, my winter gig, a labor of love. I am still looking for the summer equivalent; something other than building, which is what really pays the bills.

Drooling isn't polite, I know...but nonetheless...

Someone said the other day that New England is in for a lot of snow this winter. My fist pump got me a really strange look.

Sigh. Snow envy.
