Well after it warmed up to a more comfortable seven degrees Milham has now been groomed. To thin to set a track but groomed an extra wide skate lane. Would expect skiing to be fair once the trail has some time to set up. Looks like we can ski locally again at least until the weekend.

Tue, Jan 16: Milham Park Golf Course (Kalamazoo)

Woke up early to groom Milham this morning only to find that it was very cold and snowing pretty hard. I have today off from work so current plan is to wait until it the snow lets up and it warms up a bit. Plan is to groom late morning / early afternoon now. Would expect it to be ready by midafternoon. I will report after grooming but expect thin but doable skate lane and to thin to set a machined track. Would expect classic skiing to be ok just to thin to run the track setter around though.
