Sandia Peak: New grooming equipmment

Chris Norton, our groomer, bought and donated to the UNM's Ski Team this roller groomer:…/rollercompactor.html
It will be delivered this week and Fredrik, the UNM Ski Team Head Coach, is transporting it up to the trails so that we can start grooming with it. The roller was a $2100 and will improve the grooming of the trails dramatically. A track setter will be attached to it so that classic tracks can be set at the same time. This groomer will compact new snow, and poles don't sink through on the edges.
Next fall: We will be looking for donations to purchase this…/84ytsginzugroomer.html along with an adjustable track setter.
This will set a perfect skate lane, classic track, and also break up and then smooth out icy trails. It will run about $5k to $6k. Chris is already putting $1000 towards it.
If you are interested in donating, please contact us. Any donation, modest or large, would be greatly appreciated and will greatly increase the quality of the Sandia Nordic trails.
Let us know of your interest and we will put you on the list for next fall. Thank you
