XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 03/18
Feeling cooped up? Get out and ski!

Bob and Lynne had a great ski yesterday on the Wild Turkey trail, even though they had to ski through some dirt sometimes. We consider these to be great spring conditions, understanding of course that when things warm up, some parts of the trail lose their snow.

The fresh snow we received this morning will help the trails and make it easier to slide over the bare spots! We spoke with others who have been skiing the trails the last couple days, too, and who have been having a lot of fun in the woods, skiing on rock skis, and breathing the fresh air. One skier had done the Manitou trail and said that despite bare spots, the majority of it is still great for spring skiing... www.skimichigan.org/?p=14570 #crosscountry

XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 03/14
We had snow, rain, and mixed temps in Higgins Lake throughout this past week. Tractor Bob put forth a big effort yesterday to grind up some of the hard pack on the trail with the pre-seeder, which has done wonders for the trail surface, and transformed boiler-plate ice into about 2km of good skiable snow for today and tomorrow. The Trapper’s Cabin trail is open, as is part of the Rolling Hills trail as well as the practice/demo area. He will continue working on the Rolling Hills trail this morning. We do not advise skiing on the rest of the trails as they are quite icy. Join us at 10:30 for the Free Beginner Ski Lesson! #crosscountry
