RASC Trails and XC Ski Trail Grooming

Here you'll find all the information we have about ski trail grooming and trail maintenance. The links to the left will provide you with more information on:

1) The rotation system we use for volunteer groomers in the winter, and volunteer trail mowers in the Spring, Summer, and Fall,

2) The itemized list of year-round activities that must be tended to in order for the trails to stay in good condition and to have the ski trails groomed in the winter.

3) Ski Trail Grooming Guide - this is the compilation of most of what we've learned while running a volunteer grooming operation over the years. It is intended to familiarize volunteers with what they need to know in order to safely groom trails and take good care of the equipment.

4) The annual grooming reports from previous seasons. This is a short summary of our efforts for each season.

5) Equipment lists and links - here you'll find pictures of some of our equipment (more to be added), and links to the major manufacturers of grooming equipment available in the United States.
