Groomed trails at the WHO?

by

Skiers, start your engines. Er, feet. Sorry.

Anyway: Two miles of groomed ski trails are opening at Burlington's Intervale Center tonight. That is almost certainly good news for local skate (and classic) skiers, who typically travel out of town to find well-manicured tracts of outdoor corduroy.

The grooming comes courtesy of volunteers from Local Motion, a bike-and-skier-friendly downtown nonprofit that purchased grooming equipment for $3,100. Local ski shop Skirack, Intervale farmers, the Burlington Department of Parks and Recreation and the Winooski Valley Park District donated cash.

More info, call 652-2453, visit Local Motion's website or consult skiburlington.blogspot.com. Happy trails!
