LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

WED, FEB 21

Nubs Nob: The crew at Nubs delivered yet again by laying down tilled corduroy on the skate lane and fresh classic tracks after 36 hours of ice/rain. Some of the fastest conditions of the season with full control.

Stokely Creek: Stokely got a drizzle of rain last night for a couple hours and then the temps dropped to the low 20s and our groomers were out again this morning. No rain today nor in the forecast. So our very good base is not diminished. Tour De Huts is about 10 days away and it is not to late to sign up for fun on the Stokely trails with lunch at Norm's and Walker lake huts.

Crystal Mountain: I had the last two days off and wasn't expecting to come back to any snow but OMG I could not believe how much base we have. I took the tidd tech out and tried scratching stuff up, it was doing a decent job but then I had mechanical issues. I got Loon's, lower Stag, Jacks and Willies done before the sled petered out on me. Greg is out there now seeing if he can do some more. There isn't a track set but the skating lanes should be fast on the above mentioned trails and any that Greg can get to. Hope fully we get the sled issues ironed out so we can do it again tomorrow. There is some ice and bare spots but nothing you can't ski around. Remember it's like spring skiing so don't expect perfect conditions-just be glad there's snow in the form of snow cone.

Boyne Mountain: Due to the rain and ice all trails are closed today.

The shop is open and we have everything at 30% off!

Hanson Hills: Unfortunately our trail system has not responded well to the rain and warmer temperatures. All Cross Country Trails are closed and un-skiable at this time.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: After considerable rain throughout the day yesterday, the temps finally cooled down last night. We received a dusting of snow overnight, and as of 7:00am it is 25F. Due to all the moisture on the trails, we will not be grooming today. In the best interest of preserving the snow, we ask that no one ski on the trails today while we let some of the water drain away. Only the practice area is open today for ski demos.

Today’s Stone Turtle Cafe lunch special is the Italian Stallion Panini! Ham, pepperoni, provolone, banana peppers, black olives, and marinara sauce on sliced Stone House Italian Bread. Served with Great Lakes Chips and a pickle!

Join us this weekend for a whole bunch of events!

Saturday, February 24th: Birkie Live Stream and Taste of Gates!
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.

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.

Sunday, February 25th: The 25th Annual Junior Muffin Race!
Join us for the longest standing juniors race in Michigan! The Muffin Race celebrates the fun of youth skiing with a Junior Girls & Boys 8km Pursuit race.
