“Time for some corduroy on the snow” with Human Powered Trail Grooming

“Time for some corduroy on the snow” with Human Powered Trail Grooming http://www.humanpoweredtrailgrooming.com/ I am glad that I got both the Skate Lane and Classic Tracks models. There has been just enough snow, again, to pack tracks with the Skate Lane model without the wings out. Not enough snow yet to set a classic track. Thanksgiving was the first good snow and I was also able to pack that snow. The AltaiSkis.com Hoks with a skin base work well for pulling an HPTG. Maybe when the temperatures gets above -20 C to -10 C (-4 to 14 F) I will see how my 29’er works on the packed tracks. HPTG also makes a Fat Bike model. For weights I got a number of the rectangular 12.5 lb weights from a Weider Home Gym when the Ithaca Sears closed. I removed the 2 dividers in the HPTG weight box, the inside of the weight box inside is the width of two plates and is two plates deep. For this snow I am using 2 plates, 25 lb, and filling in the rest of the weight box with scraps of blue board Styrofoam.
