LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

MON, FEB 19

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: What a great weekend of skiing! Our trails held up beautifully, with some skate skiers even saying that conditions were the best they’ve been all season. Groomer Mike snow combed the trails early this morning, so the skiing this morning will be really nice on the Rolling Hills, Trappers Cabin, Wild Turkey, Mackinaw Cut, and Adventure trails. The Tall Pines, Blizzard and Manitou trails are closed due to ice and bare spots. The practice area are open with fair to very good conditions as well. Ski early today before the weather shifts!

Today’s Stone Turtle Cafe lunch special is the Gourmet Chili Bar! Your choice of Classic or Veggie Chili, plus an assortment of delicious toppings. Try a homemade cornbread muffin and real butter with your chili and feel like a whole new person!

Get outside and enjoy the snow this morning!

SUN, FEB 18

: Classic skied the Duggins consevatory trails right across from old Camp Seagull. Excellent conditions. Also a firm crust would have been excellent skate skiing conditions. Rain the next few days will shut things down, but can't wait for fresh snow to head back out there. Used Toko yellow kicker. Hap wright

Vasa Trail: Great skiing on the Vasa, thanks to a dusting of fresh snow overnight & TART groom by Glen! I skied from Timber Ridge on the 10k to the Nipple, skipping Headwaters, the 25k to JackPine & back to TR today, approx 25 km in 3+ hrs.There were only 2 hills that were icy, one on the 25k to the N of the Timber Ridge exit between 2 trees, and one after the Nipple/10k junction on the 25k heading towards the powerline. In addition, the first 2 downhills in JackPine are getting thin at the base of the down/uphillls due to the warmth of the trees beside the trail. Timber Ridge had groomed corduroy, too, and all of the trails had a shallow, hardpacked classic track with lots of leaves, which is no problem with Twin Skins. While visiting with Mario Kennedy, I spotted a porcupine in the woods, which was a first for me. LET IT SNOW!!!

Crystal Mountain: We got about an half inch of snow last night which helped to make the trails not so icy. I re-groomed everything today and tried to set new tracks. Some turned out ok-some didn't. Come on out and ski while you can. We won't be grooming tomorrow.

Huron Meadows Metropark: Great day skiing on buck's run. Skate lane and classic were both fast and nicely done.
Thanks again everyone at Huron Meadows.

Huron Meadows Metropark: Same incredible conditions as yesterday, except the classic track was a little nicer and a little deeper. It was also beautiful weather today get out and enjoy it while we've got it. It will be excellent all day long.

Huron Meadows Metropark: Bucks Run was freshly groomed early this morning and the skating conditions were excellent at about 7:45 am. Fast and controllable. The parking lot was starting to fill when I left about 9:00, so it should be a great day to ski again. Hope that the based on Bucks holds up during this week's warm-up....great job groomers!

Stokely Creek: Blue skies and great skiing. Skiing was perfect on Saturday and our skiers asked that we not groom today because conditions are still great and lets just keep it that way. It is always fun to hear new arrivals say, " wow, you really have snow". Somehow only seeing is believing. Up to six inches in the forecast for the next couple days.

Vasa Trail: Skied from Single Track parking lot to the Rock and back. Riley’s loop is an icy mess, but the Vasa was in good shape. Skate lane was groomed this morning. Somewhat icy base but there is enough corduroy on top to control your skis.

There are a few icy spots in the flats and some of the hills are getting icy as well.

Weather forecast is not encouraging - looks like rain is in the way. Today might be the last good day for awhile.

Boyne Mountain: Trail conditions are hard and fast--use caution. Everything is open. Vistas has an icy patch that we are evaluating this morning.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: We were very stoked with how many skiers got out and enjoyed the trails yesterday! We received a fresh dusting of snow last night, which will help freshen up the skate lanes and classic tracks today. Conditions remain very skiable on the trails that are open, with decent to good conditions and the occasional icy/crusty spot. Classic tracks were set on Friday on parts of Trappers Cabin and Rolling Hills, and all of the other trails still have existing tracks from Tuesday. Conditions are fair to very good on the Rolling Hills, Trappers Cabin, Wild Turkey, Mackinaw Cut, and Adventure trails. Groomer Mike will snow comb all of the above trails this morning. Until we get more snow, the Tall Pines, Blizzard and Manitou trails are closed due to ice and bare spots. The practice area are open with fair to very good conditions as well.

Today’s Stone Turtle Cafe lunch special is the Gourmet Chili Bar! Your choice of Classic or Veggie Chili, plus an assortment of delicious toppings. Try a homemade cornbread muffin and real butter with your chili and feel like a whole new person!

Get outside and enjoy the snow today!
