The unexpected snowstorm in Michigan left lower Michigan trails and golf course fairways with deep heavy snow, better for classic than skating. Looking forward to groomed trails! (Photo by Gregory Worsnop).

The race course was immaculate: Double tracked, except for uphills (one track on the right, with the left groomed for herringboners) and the big downhills (one track on the right, with the left groomed for snowplowing and braking).

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

FRI, NOV 22

Forbush Corner: Larry plans to till and groom the snowmaking loop in the morning. We will be open at 10 am. Skiing should be really nice this weekend for both skate and classic. Only the snowmaking loop will be open. Chili will be available for purchase.

Noquemanon Trail-Forestville: Two inches of heavy snow fell last night and temperatures fell to the high teens at the trail head. The base took a heavy beating during the November thaw (not everyone gets to talk about November thaws) but did survive. Skiing is at least “to-win-a-bet” quality and may even rate “fair” to even “good”. I would say you should expect very thin or even zero base under the power lines near the 10k mark.

THU, NOV 21

ABR Trails: Great news! Thursday night 5 PM
We picked up about 8 inches of heavy snow today. The temps dropped and the snow is drying out. Looks like we should have some pretty good skiing tomorrow at 10 AM. We have a full crew heading out early morning and expect to groom about 25-45 km depending on conditions. We plan to have 45k open for the weekend and in great shape. The old base we had that was frozen hard is still there so I think the skiers will be very pleased.

Forbush Corner: The base has survived the rain in good condition. It is very wet though from the large amount of rain that we received. We will not be open tomorrow to let it set up before we groom. We will open at 10 on Saturday.

Crystal Mountain: The early snow has given way to late rain. Trails are currently closed until mother nature cooperates once again. May give us time to clear the leaves and other debris.

Greg, Tim and Kathy

Forbush Corner: So far, the snowmaking loop has held up really well against the warmer temperatures this week. We will be watching the warmer temps and rain today and evaluate the loop to see if we can open on Friday. If the snow sets up and we can groom it we will be open, if it's too soft we will have to wait until Saturday to open. Only the snowmaking loop has survived the warm up, the other trails are looking pretty sad. We will keep you updated.
