Ross Forrest and Geoff Sorensen our well-loved
Falls Creek trail groomers are on the lookout for wooden pallets.
Placing wooden pallets on XC Ski Trails in wet boggy areas prior to winter helps consolidate, protect and maintain snow cover. This strategy will minimise time spent repairing water damage to ski trails and means more time can be spent “grooming”.
Over summer, they hope to collect about 30 pallets. If you have access to a supply of unwanted pallets or have even one, we would be glad to take them. They can be taken to the Hoppet Office in Mt Beauty or to the Birkebeiner Clubhouse at Windy Corner Falls Creek.
