It's really pretty amazing to have it groomed this early, but please WATCH OUT on the skate track - the snow barely covers some gravel and rocky patches, and some of the asphalt paths. Whatever you do, just keep an eye open and don't go down a hill or around a corner or even two steps ahead without looking carefully. There are also some patches of stubbly grass to ski carefully through - try to save your ski base.
Use your rock skis. If you're not careful, the skis you use will soon become rock skis.
The 7th-12th grade Nordic Club is off to a great start. We had 21 kids there yesterday, plus a few that couldn't make it. Spread the word - all you need to do is register at the Rexburg City Recreation page and come to practice with your skis on Mondays and Thursdays when school is in session, from 4:15-5:15.
|Notice the classic track - you can see grass, so just watch out.|
|The City set out a wheelchair accessible port-a-potty this year. Awesome! There's room to change in there if needed.|
|21 Nordic Youth Skiers.|
|We have both classic skiers and skate skiers in the Nordic Club. I wish every kid could have a set of both.|
Duffy cleared the pond south of the Club House. That's him ice skating like a pro.
