Cross Country Ski Report – Friday, January 24th, 2014

Trails groomed up very well yesterday, the fresh dense snow not only helps build a great base but is a perfect consistency to groom. Ginzu Dana will start grooming all the trails again this morning at dawn.

Bob & Lynne skied off site yesterday taking in the great beauty of the Pigeon River along the Shingle Mill pathway. No elk sightings but plenty of hoof prints!

Today’s lunch special is the new Centre Street Cafe Wrap, inspired by one of favorite Cafes in Traverse City. This amazing wrap consists of cashew butter, hot pepper jelly, hummus, matchstick carrots, cukes, feta cheese, sprouts and tomatoes. Wow! Famous spicy chili and Veggie chili with a warm slice of Stone House 7 grain bread. We will also be serving a variety of sandwiches and paninis.
