Thanks to the small but very high quality group of Volunteers who maintained the GPRA trails on May 19th!
Grass seed was spread across all the Comp Loop trails, and an enormous amount of boulders were set in cribbing to protect the trail from erosion issues.
All trails at GPRA are now open for summer uses.
Grooming of Nordic ski trails is over for the season.
(Yet, enthusiasts may still find nice crust skiing in the early mornings at Independence Mine.)
The 2018-19 grooming season lasted 197 days. (Compared to 226 days last season)
Our grooming season started on Oct 29th at both Independence Mine and GPRA; and ended on May 14th, back at Independence Mine. We would have continued grooming for another week or two, but the State came up and plowed the snow away.
THANK YOU GROOMERS!
