The trail is still marginal at best.. Snow that we received yesterday helped to make somewhat of a base.. We were hoping for a few more inches of snow again last night, but once again Mother Nature has deprived us.
As of noon Thursday, we expect to hold a race Sunday, Jan 2nd. If conditions permit, we will have a classic race on the lower trails at an estimated 10km/5km junior. If we can't set track we may opt for a 10km freestyle.
Due to the forecasted weather and minimal snow, the Nubs Nob race on 1/1/11 is canceled but may be rescheduled. Conditions at best would be icy and at worst be dirt in the corners due to the rain. Skiing may still be good but not safe for a race.
The 2011 Cote Dame Marie Loppet is presented by The Grayling Recreation Authority. This exciting Nordic Skiing Adventure will take you through the scenic hardwood trails of Hanson Hills Recreation Area, located in Grayling, Michigan.
