VALLEY — As of Saturday January 5th the Alamosa Cattails Golf Course has been groomed for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. Conditions are excellent, according to the San Juan Nordic Club.

The Monte Vista Golf course is also groomed and a fun place to ski and snow-shoe.  The club gives a big thanks to the cities of Alamosa and Monte Vista for allowing the club to provide these opportunities for winter recreation.

The Rock Creek Archery Range was groomed on Friday, January 4. There are still some rocks and stumps in spots but most are easy to see. Classic ski tracks were set from the parking lot to the top of the meadow.  The Rock Creek Archery Range is located southwest of Monte Vista.

 The Big Meadows Campground was groomed on Thursday, January 3rd. The road is being plowed to Shaw Lake for logging so folks can drive in to the base of the dam. There is plenty of parking space and room for turning around there.  The turn-off for Big Meadows Campground is on Highway 160, west of South Fork, just before the tunnel.

Dues to the San Juan Nordic Club go to defray the costs of transportation, fuel and maintenance for our grooming equipment.  Volunteers spend many hours grooming the ski trails and maintaining the grooming equipment.  Please thank them. 

For email updates on the club’s activities and trail conditions see http://sjnordic.wordpress.com/.  For more information call 378-2751, or send an e-mail to seaton@fairpoint.net.  Send donations to SJNC, 113 Spring Creek Drive, Mosca 81146.
