FIRE AND ICE

FIRE AND ICE

On Saturday, March 26th, all of the ski trails at Alturas Lake were groomed for skate and classic, except for North Cabin and Sheep Thrills. The skating lane on Sheep thrills was touched up with a single pass of the ginzu groomer but no classic tracks were added.  Surveying the trails as they changed from hard and unforgiving ice in the morning to a warm mushy surface in the afternoon it was apparent to the old groomer Davinius that the ski season would  soon be coming to an end and he recalled the words of Robert Frost, born on that very day 142 years ago. “Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.”
