ABR Trails Sunday March 24th 9 PM

Thank you skiers for another great season! After 126 days of being open for skiing and 121 days of grooming ABR is closing as scheduled tonight. We had our Annual ABR Membership party, potluck and meeting tonight and closed the official ABR Ski Season.

We do plan on grooming the dog friendly trails (across the road) and maybe Memory Lane (5+ K) for another week or 2 on a casual basis; you can watch the website for details. However the Ski Shop, Rental shop, wax room, indoor rest rooms, and ABR main parking area are closed for the season. The Dog Trails parking lot will be open for parking until they are closed and there will be a porta potty available there. Daylight skiing or snowshoeing only, no walking on the trails, no ski patrol or rescue available, and no chalet. Please don’t use the ABR Drive way or Parking lot for any purpose. I am having a hard time selling the extension of grooming past closing (the North) to Angela….so the South side of Pioneer Road is closed until “Winter Returns.” North end is open until posted and will be groomed by Volunteers with a donation box for fuel.

Corsair Ski Trails It's been a busy week. Saturday night's rain and Sunday's fierce winds froze up the trail surface and knocked down a large amount of fallen trees, limbs and debris. We were able to clear the Silver Valley and Corsair trails, and we ground up and graded the frozen snow. Yesterday a 7 inch snowfall covered the trails. We will be rolling and packing the Silver Valley and Corsair trails today. Tracks will be set tomorrow, and we will have excellent skiing this weekend. Unfortunately, we have not been able to clear the debris off the Wright's Lake trails. For safety reasons, they are closed indefinitely due to the hazards.

2019 Corsair Trail Grooming Passes are available at Nordic Sports, in East Tawas, for $10.00. Your financial contribution makes trail clearing and grooming happen.

Noquemanon Trail Network Real Grooming Report Forestville: Six inches of new cold dry snow fell yesterday and the Gator is out on the Noque and Animoosh to 17k this morning and setting fresh classic tracks. Then they will go back out on the other trails inside 17k but may run out of time before they all get classic tracks. Yesterday we roll packed all the way to the Dome.

Saux Head: All trails were groomed and track set Friday. Saux Head is groomed as needed but at least once per week.

Fit Strip Trails: The Fit Strip was groomed Wednesday night after the second day of heavy snow. Drew was skiing last night and said it was a winter wonderland. The Fit Strip in Marquette is now open for skiers. Grooming is performed as needed but at least once per week. Skiers should be advised that some people do also walk on the groomed trails so expect some foot prints.

Big Bay Trails: All trails except Ridge Line are groomed and open for classic skiing. Big Bay trails well be groomed as needed but at least once per week. Classic skiing on trails with no skate lanes are way more fun than being on the side of a skate lane. See our website for details on the Big Bay trails.

Snow Bike Trails: Snow bike enthusiast are encouraged to visit the Face Book page dedicated to snow bike trails. Conditions vary from day to day and grooming is not a daily event. Each day bikers will comment on conditions and post pictures.

Way Too Long Grooming Report: Wow, another day of 6”+ snow event. What a great thing. We can use the additional base but the groomer’s (and the report writer’s) dream is to receive about 2” of new snow every day. This embarrassment of riches creates several days of clean up grooming. Skiers will likely find a soft skate track today and it will take several days to set all trail’s classic tracks. Smart skiers pull out their classic skis after a major snow event because of the soft skate lanes.

Classic skiers will appreciate the use of the Gator for classic track grooming because of the firm outside pole plant provided. When at the trail head you may want to study the various pieces of equipment. The Gator is the enclosed side by side unit with four sets of tread tracks. The tracks are placed at the outer edge rather than in the middle as on a snowmobile. I am interested to know if any of today’s classic skiers notice today’s pole plant. Of course, all the trails and pole plants will be soft so today may be a poor day to run such a test. In any case, the pictures sure look good.

Trail Host Volunteers Needed: I expect you have enjoyed the company and service of our trail head hosts over the years. You too can be a host volunteer. It is fun and warm work. You get to play with fire, meet interesting people and perform a valuable service to the community. The ideal volunteer provides services for a 3 hour shift once a week M-F. Our trail head coordinator is JJ Farrington. Please stop and say hi. If you would like to help out, call JJ Farrington for details. 248-242-2723.

Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail - Ski Conditions

Thursday, March 7, 2019

Glen Haven to Empire was groomed with 1 set of classic tracks on 3/6/2019. Excellent conditions.

Glen Haven to Glen Arbor was groomed 3/7/2019 with 2 sets of classic tracks. Excellent conditions.

Glen Arbor to Port Oneida Road was groomed 3/7/2019 with 1 set of classic tracks.
Excellent Conditions.

Palmer Woods was groomed 3/3/2019 with 2 sets of classic tracks, we've had some fresh powder since grooming.

Due to heavy powder conditions, all grooming was done with the roller, so the trail is a bit narrower than when we can use the Ginzu.

Other ski trails in Sleeping Bear Dunes are not groomed but are open for back-country skiing and snowshoeing. They have a nice layer of fresh snow.

Go to our web site for more information about other trails.

Swedetown Trails

February 27, 2019

Swedetown – All ski trails tilled, tracked and in very good condition. Multi-use has been rolled but will be a bit soft. Multi-use parking has not been plowed out yet and Woodland Road is only one lane so use caution. SBT loops 1,2 and 3 dragged but will be soft, loop 4 is still undiscovered. Chalet parking lot is only partially plowed, PLEASE, PARK IN FRONT OF CHALET so if plow comes his job will be easier. Respect the plow Man.

XC Ski Headquarters We're back, baby!! We received about 6 inches of heavy, dense snow throughout yesterday afternoon and last night. Groomer Stu began rolling the trails at dawn this morning, starting with the Rolling Hills and Trapper's Cabin trails. He is rolling in tracks first, and then will pack and snow comb the skating lanes. Temps will rise rapidly as the day progresses, so grab your skis quick and enjoy this awesome surprise day of skiing!! Skiing is on the house today, and while the Stone Turtle Cafe will not be serving lunch, we WILL be serving coffee and muffins! We will be open until 5pm.

Ski you soon!!
