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.
