Gromit: "Retro Ski" at Churning Rapids a success!

HANCOCK -- Gromit the snow dog reports the "Retro (old-fashioned) Ski" event held by the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club Saturday, Feb. 25, at Churning Rapids was a success! She has posted photos of the event on her blog, The Trail Mutt Reports.

"All kinds of friendly people...and KIDS!" says Gromit. Click on photos for larger versions. (Photos © and courtesy Arlyn Aronson)

Close-up of the Lavvu used for the Retro Ski event. The Lavvu is a temporary dwelling used by the Sami people of what is sometimes called Lapland, in northern Europe. Its simplicity enabled the Sami to move quickly with their semi-domesticated reindeer herds. While the Lavvu is easy to assemble, Gromit, at right, insists these skiers needed her supervision.
