On January 27th, 1993, the French professional wrestler André René Roussimoff, the one time World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion known as “The Eighth Wonder of the World”, died of congestive heart failure. 27 years to the day later, Davinius groomed all ski trails at Alturas Lake as heavy snow flurries worked to negate his efforts. He requests that you remember life is precious, kick and glide, obey and ski.
Addendum – MORE BREAKING NEWS FROM UNIMPEACHABLE SOURCES!!! On Monday, at Park Creek, Adam got both skate and classic lanes groomed on Lupine, Camas, Shooting Star and Skyrocket. On Tuesday both Adam, the first man of grooming, and the aforementioned, old and hardened, but still thoughtful Davinius were sitting out an onslaught of new, blowing and drifting snow. They plan on returning to the trails on Wednesday for renewed grooming.
Could it have been that long ago? 31 years? On January 23rd, 1989, in the city of his birth, Salvador Dalí died of heart failure at the age of 84. On January 23rd, 2020, Davinius checked his watch, it appeared to be melting… time to groom the ski trails at Alturas Lake once again. The Trail to the Lake, Over the Hill, North Cabin and South Loop were all touched up. Classic tracks were reset from the bridge to the Lake. While not quite perfect, the trails certainly looked good enough for an overdose of satisfaction.
On Monday, Davinius double graded and quadruple ginzued the trail to Alturas lake from the bridge. Classic tracks were set there and looked great. On Wednesday, Adam groomed Camas, Skyrocket, Lupine and Shooting Star at Park Creek and Chadeus headed out at Alturas to do more grading and grooming there.
We hope you enjoy the skiing the trails
With a crystalline delight;
Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme,
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells –
From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells.
