December 31st – last day of 2017, here we come 2018!

Even though we are ending 2017 on a very cold note temperature wise; our ski trails at Pincushion are in excellent condition for cross country skiing. Much thanks to all of the help put in by volunteer trail clearing this fall and the endless work by the trail grooming team to groom the ski trails AND keep the grooming equipment operating.

I was fortunate to be able to help re-start our Nordic Ski Team for Cook County High with a co-op with Two Harbors Nordic Ski Team. This all came together at the last minute with help from the school, The North Superior Ski & Run Club board, and many parents and volunteer mentors. We got out on skis the first week of practice and continued to ski on snow even when the conditions were not the greatest over the preceding few weeks. We’ve had one race so far with a whole bunch more to come.

Now, I’m just hoping to see the temperatures warm up so all of these finely groomed trails can be enjoyed by all and the Nordic Ski Team can further develop their skiing skills through the remainder of the 2017-2018 ski season.
