Not only did Mother Nature blanket us with over a half-foot of snow, she also brought us temperatures that are good for snow making, That's right, we turned on the snow guns last night, and some are still running. It's going to be a great weekend of skiing and snowboarding. See you on the slopes at Pine Knob!

FROM Cross Country Ski Headquarters
Trails are looking mighty fine this morning👀❄️
We received just under two inches of fresh dense snow last night which is exactly what the trails needed to result in great ski conditions. Groomer Butch has snowcombed Blizzard, Rolling Hills, Trappers Cabin, Mackinac Cut, Wild Turkey, and Adventure Trails this morning. Butch also rolled in classic tracks on Blizzard and Trappers Cabin Trails, but left decent skied-in tracks untouched on all other trails. While Manitou and Tall Pines trails were not groomed today due to just a few thin spots, those trails are still open for skiing.

Sleeping Bear Dunes – Holiday Hike and Snowshoe Hikes – December 28 and Saturdays, January 9 – March 5, 2016

Park rangers say “Let it snow!” so you can explore Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore) on snowshoes this winter! On December 28, there will be a holiday hike (snowshoe hike; weather permitting) at 1:00 p.m. Meet at the National Lakeshore’s Philip A. Hart Visitor Center in Empire. Reservations are required.

The first hike of the regular season will be on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. Then, snowshoe hikes will be offered every Saturday at 1:00 p.m. through March 5, 2016. Meet at the National Lakeshore’s Philip A. Hart Visitor Center in Empire. If you don’t have your own, snowshoes will be loaned at no charge. Participants need only purchase the park entrance pass or have an annual pass to join in the fun. Reservations are required whether you need to borrow snowshoes or have your own. Park ranger-led snowshoe hikes have a limit on the number of participants. Please call 231-326-4700, extension 5010, for details and to make reservations. If you make a reservation, but then need to cancel, please call and let us know so we can contact visitors on our waiting list.

Snowshoe hikes are fun for all ages. Inside the visitor center, park rRangers will first provide basic snowshoeing instructions and then everyone will travel by car to the trailhead or area of the National Lakeshore pre-selected for that day. Once there, the park ranger will help participants learn about the park’s unique features and winter’s effect on them by exploring and discovering clues on site. Be prepared and plan to be outside until about 3:00 p.m. Dress in layers and wear waterproof boots to be most comfortable.

Not only is snowshoeing easy, fun, and good exercise, it is also an activity that can be enjoyed by all ages. The park ranger-led hikes are mildly strenuous, yet they proceed at a leisurely pace for only one and a half miles at the most. The National Lakeshore is excited to offer programs such as the snowshoe hikes as a way to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service (NPS) in 2016. The goal of the NPS Centennial is to connect with and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates.
