The unexpected snowstorm in Michigan left lower Michigan trails and golf course fairways with deep heavy snow, better for classic than skating. Looking forward to groomed trails! (Photo by Gregory Worsnop).

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

WED, NOV 20

Huron Meadows Metropark: Morning ski: Coverage was OK along the west side of the north trail. Skied the entire north loop and only had to take my skis off once...the cart paths are still covered except for one.

The contractor's loop is good, too...one bare spot.

TUE, NOV 19

Huron Meadows Metropark: Made it around coyote several times again today. Balancing act working around open areas, but can be done. Should be able to get in one more ski in the morning. Then hope for colder temps to get bucks run going.

Huron Meadows Metropark: Thanks for the trail report last night, @jay! Just finished skiing this morning at around 10:45. Contractor's loop was in great shape except for the area around trail marker 4 (where the natural-snow Frosty Freestyle course enters the loop): trail gone for a few feet on one side (I just walked over the grass with my rock skis) and a few easy-to-get-around dirt spots on the other side. Did some nice intervals on the trail.

Coyote Run (north golf course) was still very skiable, but the course was gone in 2-3 places, so you had to pick your way around.

I did not try the south golf course. And the snow was still too soft for crust skiing.

Hanson Hills: Hello everyone,
I am sorry for the late posting. Grayling has had the short end of the stick as far as snowfall this early season. Trails are all cleaned and prepped for the winter season, and groomers are on standby as soon as we get enough groom worthy snowfall. I am happy to announce that we are also in the process of purchasing a Pisten Bully 100 groomer for the Nordic Trail System this year. If all goes well we should take delivery sometime in January. It has been a busy summer as you will notice our Main Lodge undergone major upgrading, as we replaced our roof, windows, doors and siding, as well as poured all new concrete sidewalks and installed a handicap accessible ramp. I will do my best this early season to keep you posted on current trail conditions. Hope to see everyone soon!!
