XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 01/12

It’s great to see so many skiers enjoying the snow here in the north woods! Conditions are holding up well, with some great skiing to be found on the Rolling Hills, Wild Turkey, Mackinaw Cut, Trapper’s Cabin, and Manitou trails. Groomer Mike will snow comb the skate lanes on all trails at daybreak today, and classic tracks were set on Thursday. There are some oak leaves down in some spots, and the trail head is becoming a bit hard-packed, but overall conditions are good to great for classic and skating!

Weather Forecast:
Today: Cloudy skies. High 27F. Winds ENE at 5 to 10 mph.
Tonight: Cloudy skies this evening will become partly cloudy after midnight. Low 12F. Winds ENE at 5 to 10 mph.
Tomorrow: Sunshine and clouds mixed. High near 25F. Winds light and variable.

Join us this weekend for on-snow fun!

Our weekly Free Ski Lesson is today at 10:30am, followed by a favorite Stone Turtle Cafe lunch special: Fire Grilled Pizzas on the sun deck! Served today from noon to 3pm.
Tomorrow, Sunday, join us for a major culinary event: Paella! Cooked over open flame in a giant cast iron pan on our outdoor BBQ pit. Seatings at 1pm and 3pm.

There’s a lot of winter left! It’s a great time to shop for a new XC ski jacket, like the women’s Kari Traa Tove jacket
, or the men’s Louis Garneau Enertec Hoodie
. Free ski demos all weekend!

Enjoy the snow today!!

Wasn’t there a p-tex on the side skate ski in the late 80s? Nice graphics on the ski...

Whoa! Do we have to wax the sidewalls? :D

I’m in the market for new skate skis, so would like to try them out!

Sunset on the Manitou trail. When you can end the day with a sunset ski, you know that life is pretty darn good. ❄️#sunsetski #manitoutrail #perspective #puremichigan ... See MoreSee Less
