FVCC Nordic Trail Report – Dec 28, 2012

With the 1 or 2″ of snow we’ve had the last couple days, I’ve been able to groom some trails at the college. Coverage is pretty good, but it’s a bit rough, with some weeds and rocks poking through. But it’s skiable.
With the new tennis court and new road, I’ve had to be a little creative. From the trailhead at the parking lot, the trail winds around the tennis court, down the hill, and across the road down to the river (nicest trail). Heading north from the trailhead, it goes around the community garden, across the creek, up the ‘valley’ behind walmart, up the hill into the upper meadow. From there it goes behind the heavy equipment shop and over behind home depot and the new road.
I’ll be adding more trail and improving conditions as snow and time allows. From Steve Muller – Groomer
