Bah Humbug! It was coal in the stockings of lower peninsula Michigan skiers, with little or no snow to take advantage of over the holiday season. And the days after Christmas are not encouraging: mostly rain, warm weather, and maybe a little lake effect i

With warmer weather forecasted this week, the man-made snow at Huron Meadows Metropark and the Cross Country Ski Headquarters may be the only snow around. It seemed appropriate to post something about waxing for artificial snow.

Friday's sprint qualifier felt like your typical first race: Too short, too fast and all over the place. At least, I thought, it was only going to get better from there...

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

FRI, JAN 19

Crystal Mountain: I didn't groom today but I did ski this morning and even though the track set was shallow it was still ski-able-no bare spots anywhere but with leaves in the tracks in the woods.. I don't know if I'll groom tomorrow either. It will depend on if it sets up. The temps don't look favorable. If we don't get any rain in this warm up we should be able to hold our own and not lose our base. Keep your fingers crossed and do that snow dance.

Lost Lakes Pathway: Since the trail was so rough from multi-use, we headed out on Lake Dubonnet, where there were some ice fishermen & snowmobile tracks. After the middle loop, Kathy & Winnie headed back while I continued on the big, back loop. I love this trail, though not very challenging, since there is water on each loop, Lake Dubonnet on the first, the river on the middle, and several small lakes on the back loop. Note: I have never seen so much tree debris on the trail. Considering the warm-up, I would wait for some new snow before skiing it again.

Huron Meadows Metropark: Snow was added again today on Buck's run and groomed. Classic tracks are in excellent condition. Tracks are deep. Tracks are probably the best they have been since the races.
Skating lane also in great condition.
All other trails are in poor shape.

Hanson Hills: Due to poor snow conditions, trails will remain closed through the weekend. Please Visit our friends to the North in Frederic at Forbush Corners , they have (14km) groomed with set track. Also XC Ski Headquarters has 1.5Km of groomed trail.

Cote Dame Marie will be held at Forbush Corners on Jan 20th,
Registration will be held from 8am-9:30pm.
9:30am - Junior Boys (6.5km) 1 lap
9:33am- Junior Girls (6.5km) 1 lap
10:00am- Michigan Cup Men (19.5km) 3 laps
10:03am- Michigan Cup Women (13km) 2 laps

Stokely Creek: All our trails are groomed and in great shape with a solid base of 10 inches and more in some areas. Today will be a little above freezing but a great day for skiing. Our guests have been enjoying skiing on the lakes. Go to our Face Book page to see photos of lake skiing. Lots of snow in the forecast for next week.
