More reflecting of old Mud Lake trail

More markings got done on the old Mud Lake trail.
Reflectors were added so groomers can make their way through snow and wind at night.

The view of Mud Lake. Could it be a more gorgeous day to be out on the trail??

The rock warning that was busted off by log skidders is back.
BIG thanks to Siena for helping.

More stumps got removed as well.

Make A Difference Day was today.

Make A Difference Day happened on the Maasto trails today. A hearty crew headed down into the gorge to do some much needed fall maintenance.
The crew gathered at Tomasi Trailhead on Saturday morning.
In Swedetown gorge, a ditch was cleaned out to help keep water
off the ski trail.

A water-bar was revamped to keep water from flowing down the trail and
creating erosion.

Big logs were a only small problem for this crew.

A crew weed whacked their way up Side-Winder trail.
These guys are the best!

Today, 21 MTU students each donated KNSC 4 hours of their free time on a beautiful fall morning. Six of the KNSC board, and the head groomer, supervised and assisted. This amounts to 116 hours dedicated to getting the trails ready for winter fun. Can you join us next weekend? We'd really appreciate your help!

New shed news II

Our new shed is coming along, slowly but surely.  Thanks to all who's came out and assisted some.  
It's starting to take shape and look like a skiers skid shed :-).

With any luck, we'll get it covered before the snow flies!

Today we worked on the north side. Here stumps are being taken out.

And a few small ones were pulled out.

Major Mud lake work done today

With the help of Cory and Yogi, we got another K of trail cleared today.
This is right along Mud Lake.

Now on the last ascent up and away from the lake.
Yes it's weedy.
On the way up, we take a break.

Now at the top.

BIG thanks to Yogi and Cory for helping today.
More stumps were also pulled out today.
Looking down the ascent and you can faintly see the Lake.
This is were we stopped.  What was cleared from the other side, is about 500ft away.
We will be out to here again on Tuesday, October 18th. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated! With enough help, this project could be completed in one more work day.

This is Mark cutting slash along the lake shore.

Trail supervisor Gromit approves the work.

Stumps being pulled out via Dusty the Defender.

Look at those colors!

Yes it's some work, but reopening this trail is well worth it.

This was a great day to be out.

More stump action.
Soup's on!

We'll pick up where we left off here tomorrow, starting at 9. Please join us.  We'll make this trail the best ever!
