UPDATE (2/16/17) Key Points:
*Spooner will be groomed Saturday morning 2/18/17 after Friday nights snowfall – If you are there extremely early, please don't use the trail for two to three hours to allow the freshly groomed snow to set up properly.
We are getting closer to having the snowmobile (Sherpa) serviced. It needed bearings which will hopefully arrive next week. We thank Nevada State Parks for its efforts in getting the Sherpa fully functional. Until we get Sherpa working, we have no way to carry out daily clean ups of the divots and post holes in the trail caused by users not adhering to trail etiquette.
*Please respect trail etiquette: Snowshoers to one side of the trail, track is for classic skiers, the middle of the groomed trails are for skate skiers and classic skiers. If one person tears up the trail, it affects everybody's experience.
UPDATE (2/10/17) Key Points:
*Spooner will be groomed Saturday morning 2/11/17 after the snowstorm- Please don't use the trail until an hour after it is set.
*Please respect trail etiquette: Snowshoers to one side of the trail, track is for classic skiers, the middle of the groomed trails are for skate skiers and classic skiers. (We need everyone to follow this etiquette because we can't groom and maintain trails on a daily basis - if one person tears up the trail, it affects everybody's experience).
For More Details:
Matt from Sierra Snowcats Inc. will groom with his CAT tomorrow evening (Fri 2/10). If you are there in the evening, please do not use the trail until it has set up. It takes an hour or so for the snow in the trails to settle after the grooming.
The snowmobile (Sherpa) is in for service. We don't know if we will have the Sherpa this weekend. It is always important for snowshoes to stay to one side of our groomed trail. The center should be left for skate skiers. If there is a track, it is for classic skiing.
If the center or track get marred up by snowshoe divots or post holes, we can periodically clean it up with the Sherpa. Unfortunately, we may not have the Sherpa for a while. Thus, it is important that skier/snowshoer etiquette be followed to prolong the CAT grooming.
Should be a good weekend!
