Cross Country Ski Report – Thursday, December 26th

Merry Christmas! We received some nice fresh powder yesterday and last evening. It is just what groomer Dana needs to set fresh tracks and snowcomb the skating lanes with. He will start grooming very early this morning.

All the trails are in excellent condition. We have 8 trails open for a total of 18 kilometers (11.2 miles)

Depth of packed snow ranges from 7 to 9 inches (17 inches in the Blizzard XC Ski Park where we make snow). Depth of unpacked snow ranges from 11 to 18 inches

Today, Dec 26:  A few snow showers. High around 19. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph..

Friday, Dec 27: Partly sunny. High 27F. Winds SW 10 to 20 mph.

Saturday, Dec 28, partly sunny. High 31 Winds SSW @ 11 mph

The lunch special in the Stone Turtle Day Lodge today is chili and spicy veggie chili with a 7 grain roll. Also on the menu is a whole host of  paninis, Bosco sticks and sandwiches.

It is truly a Pure Michigan X-C Skiing Winter Wonderland!
