What a difference a day (of grooming) makes. While the snow does not want to compact very nicely for us in these temperatures, grooming still made one heck of a difference today as the inner loop is now not only rideable, but quite fun to ride. The outer loop is still quite soft and there are hills I still cannot get the grooming equipment up, but I packed it as well as I could with just the snowmobile, still hoping for better traction in the future.
One of the greatest satisfactions of being a groomer is having a great ride after the work is done, which is precisely what I did this afternoon. This terrain is really special, if you haven’t tried it out yet, come on up. My grooming and riding companion Bernie (border collie mix) says it’s great!
