Cross Country Ski Report – Sunday, March 8th, 2015

The trails remain in great shape, despite the occasional oak leaves in the tracks.  The skate lanes are firm and wide, and the classic tracks are fast but not icy.  Groomer Henry will start grooming all the trails early this morning. Conditions for Classic and Skate skiing are great. We have 10 to 18 inches of snow in the woods and 6 to 10 inches packed on the trails.  The Michigan Cup Relays will be held on the Manitou and Rolling Hills trails today from 11am to 1pm, but all other trails will be open during that time.

Forecast:

Today: A mix of clouds and sun.  High near 40F.  Winds WSW at 10 to 15 mph.

Tonight: Cloudy skies early, then partly cloudy after midnight.  A few flurries are possible.  Low 19F.  Winds W at 10 to 15 mph

Monday: A few clouds early, otherwise mostly sunny.  High 41F.  Winds WSW at 10 to 15 mph.

Monday Night:  Clear.  Low 26F.   Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.
