Woodland trails in Elk river have ALMOST as good of groomers as NIN. Lots of snow helps. Here is our advice for first time out.
Go slow. Go real slow. Slower than what you think is slow. This is a hard activity. Be cool for a few sessions.
Get you weight forward! Avoid the back seat driver and you will go faster with less effort.
Go slow. Did I mention that? Don’t be afraid to stop and visit. This is your life. Have some fun along the way.
If you stay cool and pay attention to staying in good form and in balance more than speed you actually will get better and faster. It is a weird phenomenon but it really does happen.
