#crosscountrySnow bridge. Thanks to all that spent time shoveling so we could connect the trails for a couple more days. The powerline is always the first to melt but in the trees coverage is still good. Andy groomed up to 510 last night and we will groom one more time for the season tonight so you can enjoy a final Saturday ski on groomed trails. It's been a great season. Enjoy the last of it!

Get outside. Stay healthy. Be safe. See you on the trails...at a distance!

Skate lanes were ginzued up to 17k on Noque and Animoosh tonight. Some parts are better than others as we worked to smooth out deep ski ruts and heavy foot traffic. Get out early tomorrow (wednesday) if you can! #crosscountry ... See MoreSee Less

#crosscountryIt's time to tuck away the big machine as the snow pack is diminishing. Andy will give you one more sweet Pisten Bully groom tonight. Thanks to those that tossed a few extra dollars in the grooming bucket for one last big groom. Please get out and enjoy it tomorrow. We will continue to touch up with the ginzu as temps allow over the next few weeks.

Thank you members, donors, and sponsors for your commitment to the NTN mission. Trails don't happen without you.

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
