Forbush Corner: as Guillaume Girard says, "It may be thin, it may be uneven, but it is awesome no matter what. It's never too early for a new xc ski season. Good to see many familiar faces."

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

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.

SUN, NOV 19

Lakes of the North: Skiied Lakes of the North this morn. 3-4 inches of fluffy lake effect. Ground underneath was wet/warm. PBB dry lube helped with stickiness, but was still a bit "sticky wicket." Drove through Gaylord on way home. Gaylord area got the most snow, 6-7 inches but ground underneath it is wet/warm. Hap wright
