Groomed Singletrack at HHE

Last year's generous donations helped fund the purchase of a ski doo alpine and trailer, the bad news is that the alpine just doesn't play well on the tight HHE trails. so  I am going for a Snowdog, a "tracksled" that ought to allow us to reach any of the singletrack we want.  We also have the green light from Chaut. County Parks, to try grooming part of the lower East Overland Trail.


Last year's plea and info....

45NRTH selected HHE as one of 6 finalists in their Groomed Singletrack Grant competition.  This means that they will toss $500 to HHE for making it this far. And if HHE raises the most, they will toss a total of $3000  to HHE.  Our dreams of a solar powered kegerator is in our grasp.  Please toss a few bucks this way, the more funds for grooming, means more of Thom's piggy bank can be spent for other trail needs...

Harris Hill Ext is located smackdab in the middle of the "lake effect snow dump area" of Western NY... meaning we are poised to create a fantastic fat bike playground.  With 13 miles of singletrack along with 4 miles of the East Overland trail, we have plans to initially groom over 6 miles for Wintertime fun.  For the last 3 years we have had sporadically successful results using snowshoes, Marquette skis, tires, pool filters and homemade drags via human power, an old snowmobile and even a Rokon Trailbreaker.  We now have the possibility of harnassing the ultimate weapon for laying down a sweet and tightly packed rideable ribbon. A 1981 Ski Doo Alpine , with it's twin track, monoski and geared for towing, this machine will steamroll it's way around the forest.  

Any monies will go to support the Alpine, securing a trailer, groomer/drag, trail tools and making sinage for the groomed trails. HHE has been totally a volunteer effort with most of the costs coming out of my piggy bank when the wife wasn't looking.  If  you donate, you will not only help HHE provide hours of fat bike fun, but you may also be saving my hide.

Although this El Nino year Winter has delayed the typical snow dump,  Lake Erie is not frozen over, so the lake effect machine is gearing up.  Help me, help the Fat bike community...

Never fat biked?... no worries... I'll let you borrow one of mine... but the Surgeon General requires me to alert you to the fact that even a brief exposure to riding a Fat bike, will likely cause a significant loss of the Winter doldrums.
