Panhandle Nordic Club of North Idaho
January 22: The entire area was groomed this morning. Unfortunately just in front of yet another likely rain event. In this situation we need to pack it to keep it, but the single tracks were set out n the longer runs (Skywalker, Moonrunner, Eagle Run and Elderberry) with a broad skate lane. Double track with a skate lane between was set on the Inner Core (Havin Fun, The Swoop, High Road-Skateaway and Loose Moose). The plod marks of some indiscriminate walker were covered. The crew that services the Killarney telecommunications tower came through the Rose Creek Saddle gate while our groomers were out. They were asked to stay off the groomed track as much as possible with their tracked ATV. They would affect the grooming between Rose Creek Saddle (MP 4.5) and the Killarney Tower Road (MP 3). They will also lay a couple of grooves up the Killarney Mountain Road. Did see one snow biker correctly using Skywalker-Moonrunner. A number of skiers taking advantage of the new snow and grooming prior to the rain event.

Regular Meeting: Tuesday, February 3, 7:00 PM
Location: Possible New Location - keep posted
Our First 4th of July Loppet will be Sat, Feb 14th. There will be a long (22 km) and a short course (11.4 km). Surprise your ” Valentine” with a registration form for the fun ski. This is not a race and there will be a staggered start. The 11 km is only 3 I/2 km more than the loop. See post on sidebar on right.
If you don’t have a Valentine and/or believe that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark scam to empty your pocketbook, then why not volunteer to help with registration, food preparation, make signs and help keep skiers on the course. No pressure intended but we do need more people to help out than those who signed up at the last meeting.
See the Calendar for upcoming events such as the Rock Soup (Jan. 31) and 4th of July Loppet (Feb. 14), overnight trips and more.
