HANCOCK -- Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) will host a moonlight ski on Saturday, Jan. 26. Meet at Maasto Hiihto's Tomasi Trailhead at 6:30 p.m. and ski out to the "triangle." Bring a head lamp. It is just a short (1.5 miles) ski out. The bonfire will be roaring, brats will be roasting, stories will be told. All are welcome, including furry friends.

"We bumped into our ski friends Mark and Bella," Gromit writes. "This is the spot where we have our moonlight skis. Will we see YOU at the next one, on Saturday January 26th?"

Groomer Arlyn Aronson reported early on Friday, "Maasto and CR (Churning Rapids) trails are looking up with this recent snow.  They're still quite rough but we’ll be improving them with subsequent snow."

"I 'helped' while Arly scooped snow into the crevice above the National Guard bridge," Gromit writes on her blog.

For more information email Sandy Aronson at or call her at 487-9229 or 370-2911. See more photos on Gromit's blog, The Trail Mutt Reports.
