LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

SAT, JAN 25

Boyne Mountain: Trails are soft again due to the weather warm-up, but quite skiable.

We'll groom again late today in anticipation of the cooling temps tonight.

Huron Meadows Metropark: 1pm Saturday. Natural snow trails extremely thin with bare spots; snow is slushy and compresses to the grass.
Bucks Run has full coverage. No standing water, three small areas that are slushy but the rest is icy man made snow. Conditions were firm and fast. Connector to the club house is quite thin and there is standing water where the lap/finish normally is.

Huron Meadows Metropark: Just talked with groomer and Buck's Run is still firm and no standing water what he could see. The connector looks pretty thin so not sure we will be skiing from the building tomorrow for the make up Krazy Klassic

Crystal Mountain: Greg rolled the trails yesterday and groomed the flats today. I skied Otter this morning just to see how it turned out and was pleasantly surprised. I was striding and the trackset was good. This was at 9:30 this morning. It is supposed to warm up so if you were going to come out make it sooner than later.

Hanson Hills: Trails are a little wet and soft this morning. Still very skiable. We will not be running grooming equipment today. Cooler temps forecasted for this evening and possible snow.

Lodge and Trails Open at 9am

Forbush Corner: We had just enough ungroomed snow on the trails and the snow temps were just cold enough to allow for a full Pisten Bully groom this morning.

Fresh corduroy and classic tracks should make for a great day of skiing.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: We received mixed precipitation throughout the day yesterday, and due to the dampness of the snow we will not be grooming today. The great news is that the trails have full snow coverage and conditions, while a little slow, are still great. All trails were groomed yesterday, and classic tracks remain in good shape. There is 5 to 7 inches of snow packed on the trails, and 6 to 10 inches in the woods. Join us this weekend for a ton of fun events, including Bavarian Ski Festival today, and Live Music Sunday!

FRI, JAN 24

Huron Meadows Metropark: Yuck! Climate Change sucks! (Sorry, had to vent. I'm done)

Nubs Nob: Excellent skiing and grooming on all trails today. Enjoy!

-Ben Doornbos

Hanson Hills: We received another inch of snow overnight, Groomers Jason and Tommy G. have Blue, Brown, Yellow and Wilderness Trails groomed with fresh tracks this morning.

Lodge and Trails Open at 9am.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: We received additional snow throughout the day yesterday and last night, and after Groomer Butch set tracks yesterday, conditions were absolutely excellent. Conditions are fantastic again today, and Groomer Mike is snowcombing the skating lanes and resetting tracks where needed on all trails across the street this morning. There is 6 to 8 inches of snow packed on the trails, and 8 to 12 inches in the woods. You'll have to pinch yourself while you're out there! Join us tomorrow for Bavarian Ski Festival, complete with games, prizes, amazing food, and awesome skiing. Fun for the whole family. See you at HQ!

Vasa Trail: Report: #17
Date: 01/24/20
Time: 5:10 am

Good Morning,

It is 32 degrees here at the trail head and there is about 1" of new snow. Rain is in the forecast after noon today with temps rising to around 36 degrees. I will be out this morning compacting the new snow on the skate lane portion of the trail. The classic tracks, which are still in good condition, will be left alone.
Peace,
