A timely groomer training session prepared our grooming team to mobilize quickly and efficiently for the first storm of the season on Dec. 9th. Here's a recap of the training session.
December 2nd an enthusiastic group of 12 volunteer hailing from Ipswich, Hamilton, and Manchester gathered at the Patton Homestead in Hamilton for annual trail grooming volunteer workshop. The reunited grooming team reviewed snowmobile, groomer, and trailer operation, safety precautions, troubleshooting, and grooming theory. Over coffee and donuts they shared stories of past grooming adversities (mechanical failures, drifting snow, and fallen trees- often late at night in bitter temperatures), and how they persevered to complete their shifts. Together, our dedicated groomers are committed to delivering the very best snow surface they can to our beautiful North Shore trails. As a completely volunteer-run organization, we are committed to providing our all of our fantastic groomers with the training and information they need to create the very best snow surface they can.
