Grooming Reports 2016 (snow line 541-566--2784)

Nov. 28th
As we approach December 1st, I am watching intently to see if we get enough snow to start grooming.  We need 18+ inches of snow to get started packing trails.  It looks like this week we will get a pretty good dump of snow, so we will wait and see.  The groomers are ready to go.  We spent $3,000 on both SnoCats this summer, put in 64 hours maintenance time, the groomer drivers drove 530 miles up and down the mountain in 10 hours of driving time to do this work.  Our diesel fuel is in the tanks and I have already received money from OSSA to pay for that.
 A few of us groomer drivers drove out to Tiger Canyon during elk season to make sure we can find the trail.  It does not look like it will be a problem as the fire line they cut made the road look wider most of the way.  We did lose most of our diamonds on the trees, so will need to remark that trail in the future.  
Thanks to the USForest Service for getting the culvert put in in the big dip above Spout this last month.  We should be in good shape on that trail now.
Thanks
Jess Thompson TTF grooming chairman
