Can you say "Lake Effect"? The large temperature difference between the Great Lakes and the air allows the air to rise quickly, generate lots of lake effect snow.

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

FRI, NOV 28

Nubs Nob: Just skied part of the Lower Loop and all of the Upper Red Loop, good base with a few inches of fluffy snow on top. Not groomed today. Heard that the Upper Blue Loop was soft.

THU, NOV 27

Boyne Mountain: The Christmas and Blue trails were rolled yesterday. A few more inches of nice lake effect snow today made for decent skating conditions. About 10" of snow in the woods.

Nubs Nob: Upper trails are groomed with set tracks. A little soft but very good. Used good skis.

Forbush Corner: Forbush Corners will be open this weekend. We received 4 to 6 inches of snow and some of the base survived the melt down. Trails will be groomed up and ready to go at 9 am Saturday. I will report back with a more accurate report on Friday after the trails have been rolled.

Timber Ridge: Thanks-giving xc ski with the Baic family this morning. Ann, Carrie & I skied from Timber Ridge out to JackPine turnaround. Only 3-4" snow, so "rock" skis advised since dirt comes up from one track. Timber Ridge was setting corduroy when we returned but some dirt in it, too. Need more snow & a frozen base.

Hanson Hills: We received rain on Tuesday, wiping out all of our snow.. Wednesday we did receive about 2 inches of new snow that packs down to about a 1/2 inch.. No skiable trails at Hanson right now. There is more snow north of Grayling.
