LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

TUE, OCT 27

Noquemanon Trail-Forestville: Had to check out Forestville after Blueberry to compare conditions. Noque to 17k, Animoosh, and Mukwa was rolled and groomed last night. Not as soft and bumpy as Blueberry, but there is an incredible amount of oak leaves covering the trail and that continue to fall down. Skiing was very slow going at times. Noque Pines section was in the best condition. I would suggest going to Blueberry over Forestville for the time being.

Blueberry Ridge: 10 freaking degrees this morning at Blueberry. Just brutal. Sten rolled and groomed up Wolverine and Lighted Loop. Much better skiing than yesterday as the snow has set up. Still bumpy and soft, but no bare spots!

MON, OCT 26

Blueberry Ridge: I can't believe I'm writing this right now on October 26th, but we have 8-10 inches of fresh lake effect snow at Blueberry Ridge! This is the most October snow I have ever seen in the UP. The DNR was out this morning rolling the Lighted Loop. They only did one pass with the roller, which is kind of odd because there is definitely enough snow for multiple passes with the roller and even a groom I would imagine. Hoping more of the trails are rolled by the DNR or Sten. My friend Kjetil and I ventured onto Crossroads Classic trail for a bit to find heavy snow underneath and soft, fluffy snow on top. A true October powder day. . The trails should be skiable up until early next week when the highs are back into the mid 40s for a while.
