Moving Snow

FasterSkierDecember 13, 2010

22 inches of new snow fell on Saturday night here in the upper Methow Valley.

I spent most of Sunday morning moving snow so that I could get to the shop, where I got the opportunity to shovel a couple feet off of the sidewalk and entryway to the building.

Moving two feet of new snow.

Needless to say, I didn’t get any skiing done on Sunday.    But all the outbound skis were ready for FedEx, and the Nordic Ultratune stone grinding schedule wasn’t affected by the big winter storm.

The local trails association is hustling to get all the trails packed down and beautiful, and I’m hoping to get a really great long ski outing on my day off this week.

Stone Grinding Schedule

Here’s the upcoming service schedule at Nordic Ultratune. Use these dates to make sure you get your skis ready before your most important events.
  • Skis in by Dec 16th will ship out on Dec 20th and arrive by the 23rd.
  • Skis in by Dec 23rd will ship out on Dec 27th and arrive by Dec 30th.
  • Skis in by Dec 30th will ship out on Jan 3rd and arrive by Jan 6th.
You can see that there are still a few service batches scheduled before Christmas and the post-holiday races (including Sr Nationals!).     There is still time to get a fast grind on your skis before your biggest events! But don’t delay… …fast boards are a joy to ski on, and they’re a real advantage.
