Trail Maintenance and Projects

Maintenance


NSSRC owns and maintains a Pisten Bully trail groomer, snowmoblie ski trail grooming equipment, maintenance garage and warming chalet, as well as a waxing building at the Pincushion Trailhead.  The 25 kilometers of trails include 2km of lighted trails and scenic overlooks of Lake Superior.  In addition to grooming the trails for winter ski use, the club mows and maintains the trails for summer use.
 

Projects


Please stay tuned for work projects for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2017 season!
 

Trail Conditions

Firday morning, March 24, 2017

Yes, we’re still skiing…
 
Discussion:  We received 1.5 to 2 inches of new snow at Pincushion mixed in with sleet and rain overnight.  Conditions are soft today, but without the sun we may have a bit more skiing.
 
Grooming Report:  All trails in the system except Ole Hyvaa and Hilfiker had new classic tracks set.  They set amazingly well so classic skiing should be good just now.  The same trails were combed for skating, and again, conditions are remarkably good.  That being said, there are seeps on some trails and during the day today there will be some soft spots.  Everything will freeze tonight making for icy and fast conditions.  Late spring skiing,  so please exercise caution.
 
See you on the trails,
