groomerscornerThe Groomer’s Corner

The grooming team welcomes you to Valley Spur. Dan Rabine is our lead groomer this season(2015/2016).  Dan has a great marathon ski history so he knows what to look for in grooming. He took over as lead groomer last season after working with John Swanberg for a season.   

Our goal is to have a majority of the trails  groomed by 10am each day.  We attempt to update trail conditions on this site and our FaceBook page.  We do our best to post on skinnyski.com(U.P., WI and MN) and nordicskiracer.com(Lower Mich.) at least twice a week.  If you are a skier please post to these sites to help us and the greater ski community.  Our Lodge is staffed by volunteers (when there is snow beginning Dec. 1) Thurs.-Sun., Christmas through New Year’s week, and most Holiday’s from 10am-4pm. 

We have purchased new equipment to improve our classic tracks and to allow us to groom the skate lane without having to touch the classic tracks.  With a possible low snow year these should prove to be good investments.
