Maybe the wind wasn't as bad as yesterday's North American Vasa, but the temperature was 20 degrees colder at the start of today's Gran Travers. At least kick waxing was easy...

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

TUE, NOV 21

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.
