Michigan: Northern Lower Peninsula

North of West Branch; includes Traverse City, Grayling, Gaylord, Tawas

Mon, Nov 20: Grandview Golf Course (Kalkaska)

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 (Mancelona)

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
