It was a little worrisome, what with the warm weather and rain leading up to the Michigan Cup Relays, but the Cross Country Ski Headquarters spread man-made snow where they could and farmed snow elsewhere to successfully keep the course covered.

UPDATED. Sunday's 11km Black Mountain Freestyle Race did not have the weather or groomer issues like the classic race the day before but a few rogue snowmobile incursions onto the trail had to be smoothed out, delaying the start by 5 minutes.

UPDATED. The largest snow fall of the season, the coldest night of the season, not enough ice on the lake start/finish area, frozen gas lines on one of the groomers on race day, but the end result was spectacular!
