Members of Team NordicSkiRacer have been betting on when the main man-made snow pile at Huron Meadows Metropark will melt. The once mighty, and seemingly, indestructible snow pile is now but a mere shadow of itself. Gone is the towering mammoth and left in its place is nothing but a tiny nugget. The snow pile has lost about 95% of its volume, and the end is near. What were once optimistic hopes of a competition lasting deep into the spring are now dashed. Predictions for June and July have quickly turned from front runners, to also rans, mired in the back of the pack. Pictured next to the pile  nugget, is Beckham Haberkorn.  Who, on a good day, is about 4-ft 1-inch. (Ken Roth)
