My skiing role model when I was a junior was U.S. Ski Team athlete Kris Freeman. Kris was the best distance skier in the U.S. and his success showed me that it was possible for an American...to be in the top-5 in the world.

The new T-18 is a step up in performance and price from the Toko T-14 digital iron that has been very popular the past few years. The new T-18 is clearly a different design and fabrication entirely.

Why is this iron exciting? Beside having a super nice form, soft hand grip, cord conveniently coming out of the side making it more manageable, thick graduated base plate, quality digital performance, it also goes much hotter than our other irons.

Swedetown: Wind bound in Calumet - 50 mph winds this AM..Plan to get out this afternoon. Plenty of snow. Ernie Brumbaugh

MON, NOV 20

Michigan Tech Trails: Upper trails have been groomed for skate. Base is very solid, but we still need a little more snow to set track for classic

Grandview Golf Course: Skied Grandview with Karen, Randy Smith and Bill Brundage. Sunny sky's and great skating conditions. Snow was perfect for glide and the hilly course gave us a good ski workout. Outstanding views from the course on a great day for skiing. Had about 3" of snow which set up nice overnight. Hardest part was having to get up at 6:30am so we could get to course around 8:00am before the warmer air temps arrived.
