Grooming perfect corduroy and setting crisp tracks is a complex art and science that is influenced by multiple factors including: temperature variations, wind, snow type, sun and shade exposure, frequency and amount of snowfall, type of grooming machine and the attached implements, time of day grooming occurs, speed of the machine, experience of the groomers and more. When Kimberley Nordic Club’s groomers work on the trails they consider all of these factors. We are lucky to have experienced groomers who have been laying down corduroy and setting classic tracks on the trails for years. They work late night and the early morning hours to prepare the trails for skiing.
