Chena River grooming for Sonot Kkaazoot has officially begun

The amazing Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks groomers, Tom Helmers, Ken Coe, and Bill Husby did several hours worth of grooming this morning with the ginzo and small drags. Conditions were solid but very rough (jumbled ice).

Fortunately, below normal temperatures and very little snowfall are predicted for the next 11 days so conditions should improve as the trails get more work.

Here’s a short video clip of the guys working on the trail.
