Track Report

The track was groomed after our snowfall this weekend.  There's a nice skate track, and the classic is good in some parts.  The snow is still too thin to set the classic well - you'll spend a lot of time scooting on grass.

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.
