Cross Country Ski Report – Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Even though the temps were low yesterday, it did not stop the people of the North from enjoying the nicely groomed trails. The best example was the turn out for 4H X-C Ski School. The small skiers seem to have a great time in the cold temps.

The Rolling Hills, Mackinac Cut, Manitou, Trapper’s Cabin, Adventure and Wild Turkey trails are all nicely snowcombed for skating and have tracks either set or skied in for classic.

The Blizzard trail and X-C Ski Park are snowcombed, but the tracks are marginal. The Tall Pines trail has skied in marginal tracks.
