    Shane groomed all trails today – with a light touch.  The snow is deep and it is very challenging to pull one of the heavy grooming devices with the snow machine, so he was not able to set classic track.  Your volunteers will continue to keep the trails in good shape.  John plans to head out tomorrow morning to set classic track.  As always, join and support the Girdwood Nordic Ski Club....
