Cold temperatures, weenies and whipped cream!
With 4 inches of new snow on the Alturas Lake Ski Trails, and a morning temperature of minus 26 degrees, cross country skiing at Alturas is not recommended for Thursday, January 5th, 2017. Temperatures below zero degrees test the mettle of both man and machine so grooming today is unlikely without substantial warming. Three frozen ginzu groomers motors were taken apart, thawed, greased and reasssembled yesterday and should be ready when temperatures warm before the next foot of snow falls this weekend. January 5th is Sausage day in the United Kingdom and National Whipped Cream day in the United States… a gastronomic epiphany and a menu to celebrate! Bon appetite!
