Man-made snow is MUCH better than no snow! Many skiers in southeast Michigan were taking advantage of the sugar-snow on Buck's Run at Huron Meadows today.

Al Quaal: One more short ski at Munising XC Ski Trail at Pictured Rocks, following the North Country Trail in deep classic tracks. No skating or fat tire biking on this trail. A little crusty this afternoon after drizzle this morning. F has some frozen leaf crossings & H is too steep for me without some fresh snow, but love the views of Munising Bay & Grand Island from the wooded cliff!
Huron Meadows Metropark: Still great skiing this morning. Sunny and fast.
Valley Spur: Corduroy & deep classic tracks, what more could you ask Santa for? This is skier heaven, sheer bliss!
Stokely Creek: GReat skiing on groomed trails - Carole and I skied for 2.5 hours. Not all trails are groomed for a long enjoyable ski. Early season creek crossing conditions but no problem avoiding occassional bare spots at these crossing. Don't return on Home Run HIll until more snow - middle hill has numerous gravel spots - it should have been closed - first scratch in brand new skis - bummer
Huron Meadows Metropark: Just a quick shout out to the maintenance and operations staff at Huron Meadows for working so hard to bring some skiing to snow depleted S.E. Michigan. Also thanks to all you GREAT supporters of the Metroparks!
Park Manager Cyr
Huron Meadows Metropark: Classic tracks are set this morning! Skate lane freshly groomed!
