Noquemanon Trail Network Hey Skiers....get yourself to Forestville early SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! Tonight will be the last Pisten Bully groom of the season unless we receive a late season snow storm. Andy spent 9 hours last night working a tricky base and will once again hit everything he is able to tonight. The conditions have been amazing most of the season in spite of the very low snow year. Right now the base is very thin especially on bridge crossings and the warm weather in the days ahead will take a toll on the system. We will continue to groom with the sled and ginzu as snow allows but get out early tomorrow as it may be the best of the last days...

Still here? Thanks for following along today and everyday. Trails only happen with your support. Please please please do your part by being an annual member/supporter of the organization caring for the trails you enjoy (yup, that's NTN for Forestville) or donating daily at the trailhead. -

The sun is shining. It's a beautiful day.

Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail We received 1 to 2 inches of fresh snow last night.

Unfortunately, that is not enough for us to run the groomer. Most areas have an icy base with 1-2″ of fresh snow, but some areas are bare where the wind blows the snow off the trail (Glen Haven, Dune Climb, etc.).

Conditions are generally ok, but very thin base.

Conditions are the same on backcountry hiking trails. If you are going on hiking trails in the park, best bet is walking with good tread shoes or micro-spikes or Yak Tracks. As these trails get more use, they will become slippery and icy, so enhanced traction with spikes will be helpful.

Ski Conditions – Details

Empire to Dune Climb – NOT GROOMED – thin snow covering.
Dune Climb to Glen Haven – NOT GROOMED – thin snow covering and some areas with no snow.
Glen Haven to Glen Arbor – NOT GROOMED – thin snow covering and some areas with no snow.
Crystal View Trailhead to Port Oneida Road – NOT GROOMED – thin snow covering.
Port Oneida Road to Bohemian Road – NOT GROOMED – thin snow covering.
Backcountry Park hiking trails – NOT GROOMED – thin snow covering.
Palmer Woods – Last groomed 12/17/20 – thin snow covering a 4-6″ base.

Swedetown Trails

Yay! Enough snow to set tracks on 15K of ski trails today. But still, Santa if you have time, will you deliver more snow?

Swedetown – All trails were dragged, and everything except for Powderhouse was tracked, with mixed results. There are a fair amount of thin spots in the wooded areas, where the pine trees tend to block the snow from the trail. Papa Bear is also somewhat thin. The best snow–and best tracks–will be found on Valley, Cedar, Birch, Tamarack, Ed’s Loop, and for most of Greenstone (thin on Greenstone Road). It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Grooming completed at 11:30 am.

Vasa Trail From Groomer Glen...

Good Morning Badgers,

Jim went out yesterday late afternoon into the evening and renovated the skate lane on the 5k, 10k, Special K. He also went out to the oil pad turned around and went back past Timber Ridge on his way to do a 2nd pass on the 10k and 5k. It was 33 to 26 degrees during the time Jim was on the trail.

Right now it is 10 degrees. So the trail is pretty hard. Waiting to ski until temps rise will offer more control and a safer ski.

Skiing yesterday was paradise for me and many of the other skiers that I talked to along the way. The sun was intoxicating as we skied effortlessly along a great ribbon of white. Whether you access the trail from the trail head, Timber Ridge or the single track you will encounter some very icy conditions, but if you can endure you will be rewarded. Today may offer the same as temps warm into the high 30s by late afternoon.

This was our last groom unless, of course, winter returns.

Peace, Glen

XC Ski Headquarters Happy snowy morning! We woke up to about 3 inches of fresh snow from last night. Classic rock skiing on the trails is allowed; however, there are many wide open bare spots and some ice underneath this fresh snow, so use caution. Some of the stretches should be really fun, at least until it starts to warm up later in the day!

Check out lots of sales in the shop, including 30% off a fresh inventory of Swix clothing and hats! The Stone Turtle Cafe is open today as well with a limited menu of chili and sandwiches... and cookies, hot cocoa, and adult beverages of course!

Enjoy this snow day,

Mariah, Stu, Bob, Lynne, Missy, Erin, Gill, George, Donnie and crew
