XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 02/13

We received another 1+ inches of snow last night. The trails are in best-of-the-season condition, with smooth, corduroy skate lanes and beautiful classic tracks. Groomer Butch will snow comb the skate lanes this morning and reset tracks where needed. There are 6 to 8 inches of snow packed on the trails, and 8 to 14 inches in the woods. A weekend of great events is coming up – read more below – so plan your Valentine’s Weekend Getaway at XC Ski HQ!

This Weekend: Winter Fest Night Skiing, Skate Ski Clinic, and Gourmet Chili Bar!

Winter Fest Night Skiing: From 5:30pm to 7:30pm this Friday, Feb 14th, skiers and snowshoers can enjoy a groomed, lit trail out to and back from Trapper’s Cabin, where a bonfire and hot cocoa await. Equipment rentals are available anytime before 7:00pm. Your purchase of a Winter Fest badge ($5 – available at XC Ski HQ) is your ticket to night skiing, as well as lots of other fun events throughout the weekend in the Higgins Lake area! Winter Fest ski/snowshoe rental rate is $5.
