Below are reports and photos from people who’ve done Stan Justice’s DIY Rat Ponds Tour, a COVID-19-adapted ski tour. Stan groomed the course and put out directional and interpretive signs. If you have reports/photos, you can post them on the NSCF Facebook page or send them to Eric Troyer (

Here’s a report from the SCUM.


From Bobbie Redinius:
Cathy Egan, Bobbie Redinius, and Gail Davidson enjoyed the Rat Pond Ski Tour today. We appreciate Stan’s grooming and signage efforts. Thanks so much for the wonderful tour! (Photos from Bobbie Redinius and Gail Davidson.)









From Joel Young:
Five of us had a cool, brisk, socially distanced ski this morning. Trails were in great shape and well marked. Definitely recommend others getting out there while the tracks are still in. A great early season treat! Thanks to Stan for grooming and trail signs to keep us on track and informed!












From Amanda Byrd:
Such an amazing trail!!! We did it today!!!




From Corrine Leistikow and Eric Troyer:
Great day on the trails! Thanks, Stan!
