2014-2015 Grooming Reports:

Vasa Report: Update
Date: 3-20-15
Time: 5:00PM 

It looks like we may be finished grooming for the season. Many bare spots are opening up and ice/water is forming in the low areas where the melting snow accumulates making for potentially unsafe conditions.

This season we groomed a total of 45 times requiring over 600 groomer man hours as well as over 100 in season equipment maintenance man hours. The less than normal total snowfall for the season was helped by no substantial thaws until recently. The entire TART grooming crew hopes that you enjoyed your season. We will soon begin making final repairs, modifications and getting the equipment ready for next season.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Groomer Appreciation party next Tuesday, March 24, from 5:00 to 7:00PM at the Workshop Brewing Company. For more info click here.

Report: #45 update
Date: 3-14-15
Time: 7:30 AM 

Roger and Jim have completed the 5k and 10k and are at the Wall on the 25k.  Please use caution today on all down hill and road crossing areas.   Many of these places are showing some dirt and deep ruts.  The 3k will not be groomed again this season unless we receive snow.

Report: #44 Update
Date: 3/12/15
Time: 8:00 am

Jim and Glen have completed renovating the skate lanes on all the trails of the Vasa Pathway. They report early spring conditions with a few thin spots along some of the trail edges. With temperatures expected to rise above freezing later today the best skiing will be early.

Vasa Report: #44
Date: 3-12-15
Time: 2:15AM 

Glen and I will start grooming the Vasa Pathway this morning at 3:00am. With no fresh snow to work with we will only be able to renovate the skate lanes and leave the existing classic tracks. We will follow the normal grooming pattern which is the 5K, 11K, 25K, and 3K loops. With temperatures expected to rise above freezing later today the best skiing will be early.

Vasa Report: #43 Update
Date: 3-9-15
Time: 6:30PM 

Any future grooming on the Vasa Pathway this season will be determined by the weather. We will need a below freezing night before we can even attempt to groom again. Since it takes at least four hours to groom, the temperature must fall below freezing early enough so that we can complete the groom before temperatures rise during the day. If we attempt to groom the trail while the snow is too soft it will clog the grooming equipment and cause the snowmobiles to overheat. If the trail becomes too soft and you are leaving deep marks please stay off the groomed portion. Any ski marks, foot prints or bike tracks will be difficult or impossible to remove if they freeze.

We will send out a report if and when we are able to attempt a groom.

Vasa Report: #43

Time: 6:30PM

Roger will start grooming the Vasa Pathway tomorrow morning at 5 AM. He will follow the normal grooming pattern starting with the 5K Headwaters loop, 11 K loop, 25K loop, and finish on the 3K loop. He will be renovating the skate lane on all loops and leave the existing classic tracks that were set this morning.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the open house today. It was a great turnout on a beautiful day for skiing. Thanks again to all of the volunteer cookie bakers and to Julie Clark and Brian Beauchamp from the TART staff for helping pass out the drinks and cookies.

Winter Singletrack Report: #34
Date: 3-6-15
Time: 12:20 PM

We have been in a grooming holding pattern for the past few days waiting for new snow or conditions that will allow us to improve the trail.  Currently the singletrack is firm and riding well, but the underlying snow pack is warming with the higher temps and sunny days.  Over the past week snow temperatures have gone from -14F to +13F which should be no issue for the next 24 to 48 hours. However, we are anticipating potential trail softening by Sunday evening or Monday given the current forecast for the next week.  We ask that you use good judgement on riding and to try to stick to the morning hours after overnight temps will help firm the trail as we progress into the warm week ahead.

Also, it’s time to raise a glass to those that keep your local trails groomed for winter enjoyment.  Please join us at the Groomer Appreciation Party on Tuesday March 24th at the workshop brewery from 5:00 to 7:00PM.

Good luck to those racing in the Beard Of Zeus tomorrow at Timber Ridge and enjoy the trails this weekend!

After Nick’s groom of the North Trail last night and my groom of the South Trail late this morning the entire trail is groomed. Nick had a challenging groom with some heavy drifts in the mid-section. The trail is in good shape with plenty of fresh snow and the relief from Arctic temperatures makes it a great day to get out and ski! It was good to see lots of smiles on the trail this morning.

Time: 9:30 am

I finished grooming about 7:45 this morning, all trails are groomed with several passes over the drifted areas. The trails have a firm base with soft snow on the surface due to the cold dry snow. Low pressure will give the best traction and least ruts. With warmer temperatures today the trail should setup quite firm. We do not plan on grooming again until we have significant snowfall.

Leelanau Trail Grooming Report
Date
: 2/5/15
Time: 4:21 PM

Today  I groomed the Leelanau Trail from Birch Point to the Lower Cherry Bend parking lot. Whether you like nice corduroy or those geometrically perfect half hexagon classic tracks, the trail is groovy!
Conditions are excellent for both classic and skate skiing. The new snow has given complete coverage and allowed the groomer to take out all the foot prints and ruts that had been in the trail. As I was making my return pass the classic tracks were already setting up nicely, so I would call this the best conditions of the season. Get out and ski!
NORTHERN & CENTRAL LEELANAU TRAIL UPDATE-
Bart is planning to groom going north tomorrow. I expect that conditions will be similar, but he will have some big drifts to contend with.

We just got an update from the trail. Jim called in to report the good news that there is 2-3 inches of fresh snow on the trail since yesterday morning’s groom.  The groomers started early this morning and have reset classic tracks and completed renovating the skate lane on the 5K and 10K loops.  They are now heading out to complete the full 25K loop after grooming the Nipple (or the Noodle, or the Elbow depending on what you call it).

With cold temperatures in the extended forecast and this recent snowfall the skiing this weekend and into next week should be fantastic. Enjoy the trails!

The North American Vasa race volunteers have been placing the signs necessary to hold the race over the past two days.

Good morning skiers! Conditions on the trail are in very good shape thanks to this new snowfall we received last week and the groomer’s hard work. Both skate and classic skiing should be great today.

Please be advised that there is a fatbike race happening this morning at 10:00 AM from Timber Ridge.  The race course does come onto the Vasa over a small 3K portion of the trail between the Rock and Timber Ridge so if you are heading in that direction know that you may come across racers between 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. If conditions warrant we will do a touch-up with the groomer afterwards to remove any ruts or tracks.

Steve and I will start grooming the Vasa Pathway tomorrow morning at 4:00AM. We will groom all loops in the counter clock wise direction starting with the 5K Headwaters loop, 11K and 25K loop.

The high winds last night caused drifting in some areas along the Vasa and brought down many small branches and oak leaves. Even though we reset classic tracks this morning the leaves just popped back up in the tracks. Tomorrow we will move the tracks to the opposite side of the trail in an attempt to allow the trail to be packed by skiers over the entire width and hopefully help reduce the oak leaf issue.

TART Trails will be hosting an open house tomorrow from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.  Stop by the Bunker Hill Trailhead for a hot drink and some homemade cookies and say hi to our hard working groomers who will be on hand to visit.  Ski conditions this weekend should be great! Wear your 2015 grooming badge proudly and we’ll see you out on the trail.

We have some snow!!!!

Glen and I will start grooming the Vasa this morning at 10:00AM. The delay is so that the next band of snow visible on radar will have a chance to add to our accumulation. We will start with the 5K Headwaters loop then move on to the 11K and 25K loops. We will ask Brian to send out an update later today when we determine what we will be able to do. Hopefully that will include new classic tracks.

Vasa Report:# 19 Update

Time: 8:00AM

Roger and Gary K. have finished renovating the 5 and 11K loops and are currently at the four corners area near Timber Ridge heading in a counter-clockwise direction on the 25K loop. They report they are able to loosen about the top 1/2 inch of base.

Time: 6:00PM

Roger and Gary K. will start grooming the Vasa Pathway tomorrow morning at 5:00AM. With no new snow they will once again try their best to loosen up the top layer in the skate lanes on all loops starting with the 5K and 11K loops.

The trail is holding up well but it is becoming densely packed and it is getting harder to penetrate with the grooming equipment. Once we receive three of four inches of new snow the groomers will be able mix that in with the base and conditions should improve dramatically. Hopefully we will get it soon. Think Snow!

Winter Singletrack Grooming Update
Date: 1-26-15
Time: 5:20 pm

The Singletrack has been widened for the upcoming races, no further grooming will take place until we have more snow. The trails are firm and in great condition get out and ride.

There have been reports of signage being removed from the fatbike race course near  and on VASA, hopefully this is due to wind and riders will not end up lost on the VASA because the missing signage directed them back on the Singletrack.

Gary K. and I will start grooming the Vasa Pathway tomorrow morning at 5:00AM. Predictions are for temperatures to drop and some snow. As of now we are planning to renovate the skate lanes on all loops starting with the 5K and 11K loops. If we receive enough new snow overnight we will certainly try to reset the classic tracks. We will send out an update in the morning after we determine the conditions and what we will be able to do.

It looks like the weather experts were slightly off on their predictions. It did not reach the high temperature predicted for today and as of now there is some new snow falling. Glen and Steve will start grooming the Vasa Pathway tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 5:00AM. As of now they plan on renovating the skate lane and leaving the existing classic tracks. Since there is a chance of a change in plans I will send out an update in the morning after they have had a chance to evaluate the conditions.

Today’s grooming is scratching the skate lanes only. The classic tracks will be set when there is new snow. Current conditions are good with a few thin spots so get out there early because the tracks are holding up pretty well but getting glazed. The 5K & 11k are completed and we are half-way done with the 27K, and once that is complete the 3K will be groomed.

Leelanau Trail Report
Date: 1/22/15
Northern Trail:
I did only the skate lane, trying to leave the existing classic tracks in place. I was having some trouble with the track setter not putting pressure on the snow due to a loose clamp. The skate lane is good and the classic tracks are fair. Snow coverage is good, but watch for ice and a few bare spots.
Middle Trail:
The mid section has a fair skate lane and some classic tracks. The trail north of Shady Lane was difficult to groom due to the big drift east of the orchard. The trail south of Shady Lane has a lot of ice and some bare spots for about 1/2 mile. It is skiable and might make for a good fat-bike ride!
South Trail:
I worked on the track setter, but then had trouble with the electrical switch. I got decent classic tracks set on one side of the trail from the Fouch Rd parking lot to the Cherry Bend parking lot. I was able to get a lot of the snowmobile and walker damage out of the trail and it is in good to very good condition. I think it will skate well in particular.
Going forward we intend to groom the entire trail unless new drifting snow makes it too difficult. If that happens, we will go back grooming the North and South sections, with a snowmobile pack in the middle.

Because of the lack of new snow, the weekend warm up followed by cold temperatures and skier use the base has become hard packed. Renovating the thinning base deep enough to reset classic tracks that would be as good as the existing tracks will be impossible until we receive new snow therefore he will leave the existing classic tracks.

Bart just finished a groom with the ginzu groomer to repair the trail from some snowmobile and hiker damage from this past weekend. Skate lane is back to corduroy (a tiny bit chunky do do icy old snow) and classic tracks are set. The trail is groomed from 4th St in Suttons Bay to Shady Lane Road.

Roger started grooming the Vasa trail at 6:00PM this evening. He will be renovating the skate lanes on all loops and leaving the Classic tracks that were set yesterday. Since the temperatures are predicted to drop into the teens tonight we thought it best to groom before the trail has a chance to re-freeze.

Winter Singletrack Report: #15
Date: 1-16-15
Time: 3:00 PM

We have had plenty of activity on the singletrack loop but with no new snow to groom.  While the trail is still firm at this time, tomorrows warm up will create soft conditions and impressions left by any type of use will be very tough to groom out without additional snowfall.  We are asking that users be aware of their impact and to try and keep their activities to the morning hourson Saturday when the trail will still be firm.  The trail will need several hours below freezing temps to firm up again when the next cold front moves through on Sunday.

Vasa Report: # 13 Update
Date: 1-17-15
Time: 9:00AM

Roger and Gary have finished grooming the 5K and 11K loops and are heading back to the trailhead from the 4 corners area near Timber Ridge on the 25K loop. They have renovated the skate lane and reset Classic tracks. They report that some of the water bars in Jack Pine Valleys are thin along the edges of the trail. They also reported that some areas on the 5K loop have been packed hard by skiers and with the lack of new snow some dishing of the surface has occurred.

Because of the lack of new snow near the Bartlett Rd. trailhead they will not groom the 3K Meadows loop today however it should still be in good shape from the last groom.

Please be aware of any damage you are doing to the trail if the forecast for today holds true with temperatures expected to rise later. Any ruts or footprints left in the soft surface will be difficult or impossible to remove once they refreeze until we receive more snow.

Vasa Report: #12 Update
Date:1/16/15
Time:11:00 AM

Update from the Trail: We just got word directly from groomer Roger Raehl that the entire 35K+ trail system was groomed this morning.  Roger reports that while they were out refreshing the skate lane another 2 inches of snow accumulated so they turned right back around and went out to refresh the 5K and 10K loops and reset the classic tracks on that portion of trail. Going back out after a full pass on the Vasa was not the original plan but the groomers wanted to take advantage of the fresh snowfall.  The plan for tomorrow is to get back out for an early morning groom and reset classic tracks on the rest of the trail.

I am planning to touch up the skate lane of all loops tomorrow morning starting about 5:00 am. Classic tracks are reported to still be in very good shape so will probably leave them as is for at least one more day. However, if we happen to get more snow overnight than expected, the classic tracks may be reset.

Jim has completed refreshing the skate lane on the 5K, 11K and Special K trails and is now heading out counterclockwise on the 25 from the Four Corners just outside of Timber Ridge. He has spent significant time repairing the damage from a 4WD vehicle at the Holiday Hills Rd crossing near the 22.5K post, but caution is still needed there. Otherwise, he reports the grooming is going well with just a few thin areas.

There has been a report of some 4WD damage on the trail near the Holiday Hills Rd./ power line crossing. This area has been the scene of frequent 4WD activity this season. For the most part they have stayed off the trail but sometimes they have driven on the trail. The groomers have been doing their best to repair any damage but trail users should use caution in this area

Groomer Glen got out this evening to break drifts from out last bit of lake effect yesterday.  He did his best to fill soft spots, but we’ll need more snow to really buff it out.  The good news is the trail hasn’t been this firm all year long and most of it is in stellar shape.  Cycling should be very good before the warm up this weekend.

Northern Leelanau Trail Update: Tuesday, January 13, 2015

It is a beautiful sunny day on the Leelanau Trail. The ginzu groomer is out with tracks set on one side for the trail from 4th St in Suttons Bay to Shady Lane Road. Another groom with the Ginzu is set for Wednesday or Thursday this week. Skiing will be great all week and into the weekend.

Vasa Update
Date: 1-13-15
Time: 9:00AM

With below zero temperatures overnight and very little new snow we will not be grooming the Vasa trail today. For those skiers who brave the cold temps today expect to find a little fresh powder on top of a hard base.

Leelanau Trail Report Update: 1/13/2015

Over the weekend, Glenn and I did some packing on the southern portion of the LT with the snowmobile. There are some big drifts south of Birch Point that we are taming so that we can groom with the Ginzu for the upcoming weekend.
As Nick has noted, we have a new grooming strategy for the Leelanau Trail this winter. The heavy snows last winter took a toll on the equipment and the groomers. The worst drifting is in the middle section of the trail and it is also the least skied section. We hope that we can do more grooming for less cost on the more heavily used north and south portions. Feed-back from trail users is, as always, encouraged!

Time:  9:15 AM

Good morning Leelanau Trail users, grooming on the Leelanau Trail has begun! The Leelanau Trail has been rolled from 4th St in Suttons Bay to Shady Lane Road, it was packed on Thursday and rolled again this morning. A final groom with the Ginzu and tracks set is coming soon. All of the fresh snow is requiring more rolling and packing but the trail is skiable, many skiers already out.

This is season the Leelanau Trail will see more grooming on the “ends” and less in the middle due to heavy drifting and lack of use in the middle. Expect better grooming from 4th St in Suttons Bay to Shady Lane and from Lakeveiw Hills Rd to Cherry Bend Rd.

Enjoy the trails this weekend!

Time: 4:00PM

Roger and I rolled the entire Vasa trail system to help pack down the 3-6 inches of new snow that fell since yesterdays groom. After we finished rolling we set Classic tracks and fresh corduroy on the 5 and 11K loops. Since it was still snowing quite hard at times and there were only four cars in the parking lot we decided to let the trail set up overnight and wait until tomorrow to set tracks on the 25K loop. We are starting to get a nice base built up.

Glen and Gary K. plan to start tomorrow morning (Saturday) at 3:30 and groom the entire trail system. They will set Classic tracks as they go. I will send out an update in the morning after I hear from them. It should be an awesome weekend to get outside and enjoy the snow.

Quick update from the trail folks:

Jim and Roger were out early this morning packing and rolling the entire 35k+ Vasa Trail. Despite cold and slow conditions the trail is looking great and the skiing should be quite nice.
The plan for later today is to head back out with the Tidd Tech and Ginzu to set classic tracks on the 5K and 10K loops.  Jim will send an update with more information once that is completed.

Winter Singletrack Update: 1-9-2015
Time: 2:15 PM

Groomer Tim just got off the trail making packing sled pass to break drifts and compress the last of the heavy snow we have received.  The extra grooming has paid off in a much firmer base than we had just a couple days ago.  With lake effect tapering off and slightly warmer temps ahead, it should be a great weekend of skiing and riding.

Next groom to be determined by conditions and snow accumulation.

Enjoy!

Time: 8:15 AM

John got out yesterday evening and packed and plowed the trail with the combination V blade making a pass on the entire system during the tail end of the snow storm.  Groomer Tim is headed out this morning for an additional packing pass and to break drifts.  Despite the wind, conditions should be relatively good for fatbikes and skis.

Next groom will be pending lake effect impact this afternoon.

Vasa Report: # 6 Update

Time: 9:00AM

Glen and Gary K. have finished rolling the 5 and 11K loops on the Vasa. Currently they are back at the barn troubleshooting some electrical problems with one of the snowmobiles. Once that is fixed they will head out onto the 25K loop to roll that section. As of now there are no Classic Tracks set. It will depend on how long it takes for the repairs, to finish rolling the 25K, and how close the next storm is this afternoon on whether they will be able to set tracks today.

Vasa Report: # 6

Time: 6:30PM

It was a long day grooming on the Vasa today. When we left town this morning at 5:30AM there was just a dusting of new snow in town and we debated on whether to groom or not. As it turns out we had plenty of snow to groom. We groomed the 5 and 11K and set Classic tracks which were covered by the time we finished packing the 25K loop.

Glen and Gary K. are planning on grooming tomorrow morning starting at 6:00am. If it is snowing like it did today they may delay their start time until it tapers off a bit. I will send out an update tomorrow after they report in from the trail.

Vasa Report: #5 Update
Date: 1/7/2015

What a day out there! It’s 8F, the warmest it’s been all day and blowing steady out of the WNW at 17 MPH.  Yikes! And yet, our groomers made it out this morning before most of us ventured out from under the covers to give it a go and groom the trail system.  As you can imagine it was a tough day out there for them.  Jim reports that once they completed the 5K with the Tidd Tech and Ginzu they went on to complete the 10K and when they finished it looked like the 5K hadn’t even been touched.  The wind drifting snow cased the machines to jam up a few times and they ended up stuck and having to dig their way out.  But still they forged ahead and completed the task after a trip to the barn to swap out gear and rolled all 25K.

That said, while everything has been packed, the snow accumulations have all but buried any signs of existing classic tracks and it will be soft and slow on most of the trail.  Stay tuned for more reports in the morning and if you do make it out, post a photo on our Facebook page and tell us how it was.

Winter Singletrack Update: 1-6-2015
Time: 5:15 PM

Groomer Dave got out this afternoon a little earlier than planned and made a single pass. It’s still packing in nicely though a bit dry and soft, 2 to 3 PSI will be the money range for bikes.  It’s less windy in the woods so get out and enjoy!

Vasa Update: Tuesday January 6, 2015
Time: 10:00AM

With Glen and Roger rolling the trail on Sunday afternoon the snow had a chance to set up overnight and Gary and I were able to get the Ginzu and Tidd Tech out yesterday. The skate lane is probably 95%+ covered with a base of about 2 inches in most spots along the trail. There are still some thin spots. Classic tracks have been set and we noticed a few places where dirt is visible in the bottom of the tracks. In some spots the tracks are not as smooth or deep as we like because of the thin base and the tracksetter being influenced by imperfections in the trail. All this being said the conditions are the best they have been this season.

Because of the thin base we will not groom again until we get some more snow. Continuing to groom with no new snow would only enlarge the existing bare spots and expose new ones.

Winter Single Track Update: 1-6-2015
Time: 8:45 AM

Patrick and Mike groomed two passes on the main loop and kinglet and also opened up the red trail which we were unable to get to previously.  It’s packing in nicely with only an occasional thin spot. The snow type is very loose and dry so it will take time or warmer temperatures to form a really firm base.  Groomer Dave will be going out this evening after 5:00 and we’ll make the next pass upon getting fresh snow.

Enjoy!

Vasa Update:  Monday January 5, 2015

skate lane and classic track

Jim and Gary K. are currently grooming with the snowmobiles pulling the Ginzu and TidTech groomers. They have completed the 5K Headwaters loop, the Anita Hill loop and are now on the 10K trail. After the 10K they will be grooming the 25K trail counter-clockwise. With about 2 inches of new snow added to the the 4 to 6 inches that were rolled/packed last night they report about 2 inches of base in most areas. The corduroy and classic tracks are both looking good.

 

Vasa Report: #04
Date: Sunday January 4, 2015

Glen and Roger will start rolling the Vasa trail this afternoon at 5:00pm. Glen reports that about 3 to 4 inches of new snow has fallen since this morning at the trailhead. Since it is still snowing and blowing they plan to leave the snow comb up on the rollers. This will leave a surface with larger groves that will hopefully fill with snow overnight and help build the base. The trail will still be skiable even though it will not have the familiar corduroy.

We will continue to monitor the weather overnight and plan on grooming tomorrow morning. We will send out an update when we determine a start time for tomorrow.

Winter Single Track Update: 1-4-15
Time: 10:00pm

Glen groomed the entire Winter Sports Singletrack this evening. You should find a nice compact base with two to three inches of fresh powder on the trail for Monday. Mike and Patrick will be going out tonight about 5:30pm with both the big machines to groom the trail.

Winter Single Track Update: 1-3-15
Time: 10:00pm

This morning the Singletrack loop was compacted by both the mini groomer and the larger machines, conditions currently are soft and thin.  New maps were posted at intersections for improved way finding this morning as well, feedback is appreciated so please send comments to glen.ruczynski@nmmba.net.

Vasa Report: #03
Date: Friday January 2, 2015

Jim and Glen have reported from the trail that the 5K and 10K loops have been rolled and they are now completing the 25K section of the Vasa.  Snow depths range between 1-4″ at this point and the rollers are turning up some leaves and dirt, so you may want to use rock skis if you venture out today.  Packing down this snowfall will help set things up for the additional snow we are expected to receive over the weekend.

Happy New Year!

Gary K. and I will head out to the Vasa tomorrow morning at 6:00am. What we will be able to do grooming wise will depend on the conditions we find when we arrive at the trailhead. At the very least we expect to be able to roll the trails and with any luck and enough snow we may be able to groom with the Ginzu and Tidd Tech. We will send out an update in the morning with more details.

 Vasa Update :  Thursday December 18, 2014

Good news from the trail:  Jim D. and Glen R. just called from the Headwaters 5K loop to report that they are out with the rollers and have found conditions favorable to forge ahead and continue to roll the entire 25K and 10K loops yet this morning.  Their report includes warning of some bare spots on the trail, so beware of exposed ground in some areas. If you are out on skis you may want to consider your rock skis or B-setup. Hopefully this pass with the rollers will pack the frost into the ground so that any additional snow will be more likely to stick around longer and add to our base.

Additionally, we hear that our friends at Timber Ridge have been grooming and conditions on their trails are in great condition according to skiers who have been out last night and this morning.

Vasa Report: #01
Date: Wednesday December 17, 2014

Glen and I will attempt to roll the Vasa trail tomorrow (Thursday) morning starting about 8:00am. The delay is to allow more snow to accumulate and for the ground to hopefully freeze after the warm temperatures and rain we have received lately. We will send out an update in the morning after we get on the trail. If the ground is still too soft or we do not get enough snow and the snowmobiles are causing more harm than good we will abort our grooming attempts.
