Glad you and Steve are on top of the Parkside grooming again this year. For a huge number of FIBs down here in the Banana Belt, Parkside is the go-to destination for XC. Nothing is groomed down here in Cook or Lake counties, despite big forest preserve budgets. Does UW own and maintain your equipment?

The equipment belongs to the Kenosha county parks. No work from the park mechanic today. The conditions could be pretty perfect right now if the snowmobile would start, then who knows if it willeven run. They have 2, but we have not seen the black one for years. They keep giving us the crap yellow one. Last year we had to put our fingers on the starter wire to start it. I groomed 2 times period.
Why don't you do all the Chicagoland skiers a favor and donate one?
We will give back any donations we receive for years.

They might be cutting ash trees there this winter, wouldn't that be a hoot!

If we get it groomed take the train and bus for some skiing. Beers will be on me.
