The Uncompahgre Nordic Association debuted a new network of cross-country skiing trails on the night of Jan. 6, welcoming about 60 people from the greater Montrose area to inaugurate the freshly-groomed tracks beneath the light of a full moon. Well, at least, until the weather set in. “The full moon didn’t come out because we had a pretty good snowstorm up there,” said Gary Shellhorn, president of the newly formed association. So instead, volunteers placed tiki torches along the trails, located in the Uncompahgre National Forest, and wrapped trees with battery-powered lights to supplement attendees’ headlamps.
