What's there: The Kalamazoo Nordic Skiers club decided in late 2005 to purchase a snowmobile and groomer. Charter members pooled money and started the hunt for the appropriate grooming equipment. They located and purchased a used long-track Ski Doo snowmobile, and a trailer with which to haul it around. The group already owned a home made snow roller, and in the fall of 2006 purchased a professional snow groomer that will enable compaction and grooming of snow for skate skiing, and also to set track for inline, or "classic," cross country skiing.

With permission to groom Milham Park Golf Course in hand and the grooming equipment at the ready, all KNS needs in winters to come is six inches of snow on the ground to start producing an easily-accessed groomed ski venue, open to the public.
