About Leelanau Trail Grooming

TART has operated a trail grooming program for cross-country skiing on the Leelanau Trail for 10 years. The trail is groomed for 15 miles, all the way from Suttons Bay to Traverse City. The grooming machine that TART owns, prepares the trail both for skate skiing and classic-style skiing. The Leelanau Trail is groomed once a week, generally on Friday mornings. The trail will be groomed for the Snow Day event.
