Friends of Valley Spur are following NTN's lead and ending the grooming of the ski trails at Valley Spur. It was a great ski season. Take care all.This is where we unfortunately have to tell you that grooming is being deemed not essential under the Governor's Stay Home order. We are sending our grooming crew out to clean everything up tonight before the order goes into effect so it will be a great day tomorrow! To our local trail users, pease enjoy it and make the most of it. Staff and board members are continuing to advocate at the state level to allow our local trail organizations to groom and if something changes we will let you know. Hard thaw-freeze cycles in the next few weeks may render the trails impassable and limit our outdoor social distancing options. With feet of snow on the ground it will be many weeks before trails are usable for other activities which is different than other areas of the state. If you have concerns, please voice them to Governor Gretchen Whitmer 's office and with our U.P. legislators.
