There's no MI Cup race this Sun., so come join the Potto Raid fun!

It's a go. Icy trail with some padding on top.

It's free and we have a bonfire with potluck apres'.

Further info at MMBA.org and the OYB dot com.

It's an epic loop. We see a lot of territory that you don't see if you only ride the Potto in the summer.

Come see if mt-bike type skiing is any fun.

Best to have some familiarity with it. Any skis can work but perhaps the best set-up is a midlength ski and boot with cuff. The mt-bike set-up!

Help us promote ungroomed ski fun! It's what we have a lot of around here.

Hi Mike... It was fun! Beautiful vistas. Sunshine. Very good conditions. Good trail surface. Deeper snow off to the sides let us stick a ski out to control speed on the downhills -- perfect. I didn't hear of any painful crashes. 20F to start. 25F finish, maybe. I bonked, suffered. Winner was 3:45hrs. 16 did full lap. 5 did inner loop, partial laps. Biggest turnout yet. Nice parking lot party apres'.
