XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 11/01

We received 4 to 5 inches of snow last night during a real Halloween blizzard!! As to be expected, the bottom layer is a bit wet, but the snow on top is very skiable. The trails prior to the snowfall had been meticulously mowed, cleared and graded over the past weeks, so we are confident that some really good early season conditions exist out there. The ground is not frozen yet, and there is no base, so there will be no grooming this morning and snow coverage will not be perfect on all the trails. However, these early snows are SO exciting, and there is a TON of fun to be had skiing out there, especially in the morning when temps are coolest!

*Rock Skis are recommended – we will loan you some if you need, just come inside and ask!
*Please stick to the Rolling Hills, Tall Pines, Mackinaw Cut, Trappers Cabin and Manitou trails today. Wild Turkey is closed.
*Temps will get into the upper 30s today, so come early and get it while it’s good!
Enough snow for a snowman usually means enough snow for skiing!
After you’ve enjoyed the early season skiing, come inside and shop the Pre-Season Sale! You will find tons of great deals on winter and XC clothing, plus cross country skis and over 40 custom packages. Ski season is officially upon us – come get outfitted at great prices so that you can make the most of it!

PS – if you’re at the Iceman Expo today, be sure to stop by the XC Ski HQ booth to see Erin and Fran and score sweet deals!

All the best,
Mariah, Stu, Bob, Lynne, Erin, Missy, Gill, Krista and the crew

This crew enjoyed some great spring skiing on the #xcskibq trails yesterday! Take a break from the news and the noise and head to the woods for a refreshing dose of normalcy. Rock skis recommended, and we have some to borrow if you need. Open every day until March 31st. ... See MoreSee Less
