Marshall Nordic Ski Trails Maintenance

Posted by on October 21st 2007 in Grooming

groomingThe Marshall Nordic Ski Trails are maintained and groomed by several different pieces of grooming equipment. For packing down fresh snow we use a roller constructed of an 8 foot X 30 inch diameter plastic culvert. For grooming the snow and setting classic tracks we are the proud owners of a 2007 Yellowstone Track Systems Ginzu Groomer.

This season (2007) has been a very low snow year. The team and parents have spent hours shoveling snow and hauling it out on the trail to create a small practice loop. Some of the snow that we gathered was very icy and chunky. The YTS Ginzu Groomer was able to quickly turn it into an excellent skiing surface. We also have in our grooming quiver a 8 foot wide Cragin groomer.

This fine piece of equipment is does a great job of making a very flat and wide skating surface in hard or icy conditions. To pull our grooming equipment we use a snowmobile. If you would like to learn more about our grooming equipment pleasething follow the links above.
