LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

SAT, FEB 24

Crystal Mountain: So I went out and groomed all the skating lanes and they turned out good-considering. We closed Loons from Pt. #3 to Pt. #3 1/2 due to ice and bare spots. We plan on re-routing that section next year to eliminate that problem. There are more icy spots than there were two days ago but you can ski around them.

Boyne Mountain: We were able to set fresh tracks yesterday afternoon on all of our lower trails. They firmed up nicely overnight and should be pretty fast today until mid afternoon or so. Trails overall will be firm with icy sections, softening as the day goes on. Look out for thin and bare patches. Vistas and Deer Run remain closed.

Don't forget about the sale, 30% off of EVERYTHING.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: The temps stayed cold yesterday and last night. Tractor Mike spent the day yesterday tilling up the ice with the pre-seeder, adding snow where needed, and finally grooming the John Deere Loop. Conditions will be good for skating today. Classic skiing should be fair to good, but we were unable to set classic tracks due to the crustiness of the snow. Plan on 2.5km of full coverage of a mixture of snow, crusty snow, and one or two slightly slick spots on the trail today.

Join us today for Birkie Live Stream and Taste of Gates Lunch Special! Starting at 9:30am this morning, watch “the Greatest Show on Snow” – the North American Birkebiener, live in Cable, Wisconsin! This famous ski race draws just as many fans as participants – well over 10,000. Join in the excitement by watching the live stream in the HQ Day Lodge! Then head out for a ski on the John Deere Trail, and come back in for lunch to experience the fantastic flavors of Gate’s AuSable Lodge, right here at Cross Country Ski Headquarters! Gate’s Lodge Head Chef, Matt Haley, will cook up a hearty winter feast you’ll never forget. Join us for this very special culinary experience, which showcases one of Northern Michigan’s best dining experiences. *Beverages not included.

Crystal Mountain: I'm heading out to scratch up the trails. We didn't go out yesterday but Thursday I groomed all the skating lanes (NO Trackset) and they turned out pretty decent. There are a few bare spots on Loons and Willies way and it was pretty icy where Eagles and Does come out of the woods other than that there was a lot of coverage. Under the pine trees on Aspen and Stride right there is a lot of trail trash. Otter is closed. Could be the last day. If you come out, look for Steve the Stork. He flew over to Jacks Rabbit and landed in a tree.
