It's time for the 5th annual Huron Meadows Groomer and Snowmaker appreciation party. We've added the word "Snowmaker" to the party's name to recognize that if it weren't for the snowmaking we would have had just a couple of days to ski around here.

Get in here for great deals on all of our gear while you can!

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: The earlier part of the day yesterday was great for skiing, and conditions were enjoyed by quite a few skiers before the rain set in in the afternoon. It has been raining steadily all night and looks to continue throughout the day today. Because of this, and in order to preserve as much of the snow as we can, the trails will be closed today. 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. Stop in for some shopping! We have great sales on skate and classic ski packages, plus winter clothing and accessories.

MON, FEB 19

Birkebeiner Trail: The BIRKIE TRAIL CLOSED AT 11:59 pm TODAY. Snow has started falling and we will start working on the trail early Tuesday to get the new snow to firm up in time for the events. THERE WILL STILL BE LOCATIONS WHERE YOU CAN SKI this week. Here is where you CAN ski by day this week:

Tuesday: OO loops, Birkie Ridge, competition loops at the Birkie start area, Hatchery Creek loops

Wednesday: OO loops, Birkie Ridge, competition loops at the Birkie start area, Hatchery Creek loops

Thursday: Birkie Ridge, Hatchery Creek loops

Friday: Birkie Ridge

Saturday: Birkie Ridge

Sunday: Entire Birkie Trail will be OPEN

Vasa Trail: The Vasa trail is still holding up, but warm-up (40F @ 12:30) is starting to take its toll. Skied Special K & Nipple with Paula H Dreeszen, then 25k & JackPine back to Timber Ridge, where the trail is turning to gray ice. The last powerline was a puddle so took off my Twin Skins there. As usual, the best snow was on the 25k loop & JackPine. Need a rest after 56 ski days, but still hoping for more snow soon, or I'll head to Stokely, U.P, CO, or ??? to find some in March.

Valley Spur: Trail conditions continue to be excellent at Valley Spur. Classic tracks are firm and the skate decks are solid and get freshened daily.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: What a great weekend of skiing! Our trails held up beautifully, with some skate skiers even saying that conditions were the best they’ve been all season. Groomer Mike snow combed the trails early this morning, so the skiing this morning will be really nice on the Rolling Hills, Trappers Cabin, Wild Turkey, Mackinaw Cut, and Adventure trails. The Tall Pines, Blizzard and Manitou trails are closed due to ice and bare spots. The practice area are open with fair to very good conditions as well. Ski early today before the weather shifts!

Today’s Stone Turtle Cafe lunch special is the Gourmet Chili Bar! Your choice of Classic or Veggie Chili, plus an assortment of delicious toppings. Try a homemade cornbread muffin and real butter with your chili and feel like a whole new person!

Get outside and enjoy the snow this morning!
