LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

SAT, MAR 23

Ogemaw Hills Pathway: Wow, no snow till half a mile away, then piles of it! Fast, corn conditions and beautiful!

Hanson Hills: Good clsssic track, good skating and fat tire all on same trail.
For classic try the wilderness trail.
A bit crusty til the temps get above freezing and then beautiful spring skiing.
12” of snow yet in woods.
Don’t be dismayed by first kilometer of trail, it gets a lot better.
Met me on April Fools day for the last hurrah whether classic skate or bike

Shanty Creek - Schuss Mtn: Good Saturday afternoon. It’s a beautiful day on the SCR Nordic Trails; we are skiing freshly groomed/track set on Pinecone and WinterBrook. Icy, hard corduroy in the shade, softer conditions where Spring sun shines. Come join us for our last weekend, glide around the trails, and check out our store wide 40% off sale! Stock up for spring cycling, next year’s skiing and gift-giving.

Dunes Golf Club: Crust, intense sun,wide open, no wind,just fun, 99% skiable surface.
4mi east of empire no on m-72 ( the original m-22 bypass). Kevinski slowski

Forbush Corner: The sun is out and spring skiing is definitely here. Hard and crusty in the AM, and potentially soft in the PM. It is now 14 degrees and Larry is grooming the east trail systen (badlands is finished). Trail fees reduced today and sales (40% off clothing) continues. OMG, here they come.

Black Mountain: Stay tuned.

Boyne Mountain: Wow, crust skiing is terrific today and every morning for the next several days. When it gets a little warm during the day to form a layer of moisture on top of the snow and then it gets cold at night, expect crust skiing to be good. Go out on a golf course (avoiding the greens and sand traps, of course) or any clear land and get that free-floating, I-can-go-anywhere feeling:)

We won't be grooming Innsbruck and Deer Run any more this season, but the skiing there is still decent. The shop will be open on weekends only, until the end of the season.

Speaking of the shop: EVERYTHING IS 40% OFF, the deepest discount of the season. Do some early Christmas shopping! Pick up some gear for spring, since XC gear crosses over nicely into biking, hiking, running, kayaking, etc.

Nick and Pat groomed the lower trails yesterday and they are still in decent shape. If you aren't into crust skiing then we still have plenty of groomed trail, and honestly its icy. The set tracks look awesome, and with last nights cold I'm betting they are hard, and fast. Going to be a great day to ski, get out and enjoy the sunshine.
