January 13: Grooming Fourth of July: The entire area except for Skywalker between its trail head and Skateaway was groomed Friday (Jan 13th), That section of Skywalker will be groomed tomorrow. The rest of Skywalker-Moonrunner was groomed as usual with a wide skate lane. However, a couple of interloping snowmobiles managed to get around the Rose Lake Gate and ran down this trail to beyonf Skateaways. These tracks were deep in the fresh snow and well into the packed surface below.hence the surface is uneven in places especially on curves. Keep this in mind if you are skating.

January 10: Grooming Avondale Golf Course. Thanks to John Lee the Avondale Course was groomed this afternoon for track and skate skiing.
As many of you know the snowshoe hut up on the Twisted Klister System was not up to supporting the three and a half feet of wet snow that started the 2015-2016 ski and snowshoe season. It’s failure deprived trail users last year of a warming hut on that part of the Fourth of July System. The hut has been replaced with a new design constructed around one and a half inch steel pipe (see pictures). It was a design initially suggested by the late Dennis Eular and resembles very much a sheepherders wagon minus the wheels. As you can see it features a door, and is more roomy than it predecessor with headroom up its very sides.. We tested the stove after setting it up and it heats the hut quickly. From Geoff Harvey
