I love that run on Upper Jay! The tracks are in the perfect place. Thank you Ian! I was once a groomer and I want to point out that setting track with the Tidd Tech is a very deliberate affair. If you want to stop setting track for a downhill section, you stop the snowmobile, get off, go back to the groomer and flip the track pan up so it piggybacks on the groomer, get back on the snowmobile and smooth out the hill until you want tracks again, stop, flip the track pan back on the snow, get back on, set track until the hill gets steep again, stop, get off and so on and so on. My point is, it would be much easier to set track right through minor hills or skip setting track in short sections that flatten out but Ian doesn’t. He sets them where they need to be and never where they’d get in the way of your downhill run. You can see how one-way trails make determining where to set track and where not to a lot easier and without having to compromise one direction or the other. Thank you Wild Wings for really having your act together. It makes every inch of trail more fun!

The yoga class was relaxing. The soup was delicious. Additionally, it was inspiring to see… Read more “2018 New Year’s Weekend Fun”
Thank you, Chuck, Tracy and Ian, for being the best groomers in the area. You work every day to make it possible to ski! We love the trails at Wild Wings…every ski level has beautiful trails through the woods, and it never feels crowded.
Cold day, warm day, sunny, snowy, or rainy day . . . any day at Wild Wings is a (very) good day! I love the peace, the quiet, and the beauty of the trails–there is always a surprise waiting to be glimpsed. While on Upper… Read more “Cold day, warm day, sunny,”
I’ve been skiing here since before I can remember. As a kid I took this place for granted, but am now becoming (more) grateful. So much work gets put into these trails and it shows. It’s the end of March and the skiing is still… Read more “I’ve been skiing here since”
